The boys are doing great! Sully has started to talk so much more and I know they have been working really hard with him on his speech and manners. Remy really enjoys coming to class every day and loves having Ms. Yvonne as a teacher - she is great.
When Brittany left, I was disappointed in the lack of communication regarding her departure and then the lack of follow up concerning her replacement, etc. I can imagine it was a difficult situation for everyone involved having to change things up last minute, but we were just getting comfortable with her teaching methods and Remy was deep into potty training and then all of a sudden she was gone (I was devastated because she was great and his previous teacher at our prior daycare was horrid). And then there were a multitude of different teachers in that room and we had a serious lack of consistency which negatively impacted our progress with potty training and daily routines. And when I would ask when/if she was coming back I was told 3 weeks....and then 3 weeks came and went and I asked again and was told she needed more time and then I eventually noticed her picture was no longer on the wall - I did not ask again because it was clear to me at that point that no information regarding her permanent leave was going to be provided. All of this is now water under the bridge as we have what I hope is a permanent replacement with Ms. Yvonne (whom we love and Remy has developed a great relationship with). But the transition was certainly difficult and we will still miss Ms. Brittany.
This is our 3rd daycare in a year due to some significant life changes. The daycare we left in Indiana was great and we were sad to leave . The first daycare we attended here in Florida was disappointing and we were glad to leave. And I would like to say that we are very happy we are with Kiddie Academy now. The staff is always smiling and pleasant which I know is not easy when you deal with kids all day everyday. I am grateful we found you guys and that it worked out for the boys to be enrolled with you for as long as we are lucky to stay.
The staff is amazing! My daughter has attended this school since she was a baby. Nearly 3 years later, we are so happy to be a part of this school community. She really enjoys going to school everyday, and truly loves her teachers. It is a parents dream to have such amazing support with our sweet little ones. I highly recommend this school.
I like that teachers allow the kids to be kids and meet them where they're at in their development. I like that parents are updated daily on educational activities so that we may practice them with our children at home.
I like the hospitality and the big smile that greet all the parents and children as soon as they walk through the front doors. Also I like the communication between teachers and parents through tadpoles.
Our son has grown leaps and bounds since enrolling at Kiddie Academy. I'm confident that he is ready for kindergarten as he has learned to read and can do simple math problems. His eagerness to learn has been unleashed. While we are driving in the car, he constantly questions me on concepts that I never would've imagined a 5 year old would think of! Thanks for preparing him to be a life long learner!
