I appreciate all that you have done for my child. He is learning so fast and he loves to soak up the information and uses it in the right context all of the time. He loves the staff there because everyone is so friendly and respectful, which helps him to learn respect. This has been the best daycare I have used so far.
I like the fact that the kids are taught on a level higher than other schools of likeness. Friends and coworkers are amazed to learn what kids of different age groups are learning what they are learning. Their response is shouldn't they be learning that when the start grade school.
The educational child care at kiddie academy has always been great! They have feed back everyday, and help me to up the good work, or to work on improvement at home! Great school! Recommend anyone to bring their little ones!
I love the staff there. From the directors at the front desk to the classroom, everyone is friendly to families and loving towards children. I love that my daughter loves her teachers and loves going to school. She had been to 3 centers before this one due to us moving and one center closing and she has never been so expressive about how much she loves her teachers. Also, she is learning so much. I love the pictures that we get daily and information about what she is learning. When I show her the pictures, she can tell me what she was doing in those pictures and what she leaned with that activity. The directors are awesome. They have an open line of communication (in person and via email). When I first got there, I asked parents about how they liked the center and they told me that my child would love it and they were right! I just love everything about Kiddie Academy of Laurel.
The changes that’s been implemented have been great and adding the STEAM program this year is also a plus. Summer camp costs should announced months in advance to give time to budget those costs. This summer camp was my first and i have 2 kids. It was a lot of money to provide with only a month notice. I also think another solution needs to be made for 2 year olds going on field trips. Requiring the a parent to attend was ridiculous to me because nobody wants to use all their leave days on daycare. Plus that was an incredible amount of leave days that most working ppl won’t have. A few times would be ok but ALL was a bit much.
Ny’ilah was fully potty trained by May and she started there in March. She doesn’t wet the bed, she wakes up to use the bathroom and I give full credit to Ms Jackson and Ms Keyonna. I’ve also noticed that Ny’ilah is good with other kids socially and she is definitely learning, I have to listen closely to whatever song she’s learned. She knows her name, her age, alphabet and numbers, parts of her body, etc...
Field trip related...I do think small bottles of water should be available to the kids for out door field trips (Baysox the kids looked a little thirsty after one apple juice). The Smithsonian...the kids ate breakfast but it was too much time in between lunch, maybe we could’ve fed them a piece of fruit while in line or on the way to the museum. So far the field trips are smooth and I appreciate the entire staff for being there.
