About the Provider

Description: Kids World at Willard Beach is a small childcare facility located in the heart of Willard Beach. I offer child care to a mixed age group in a intimate setting that gives each child individual attention and the ability to develop at their own pace. Structure is through reading, arts and crafts, sign language and of course learning through play.

If I could give Kids World a zero, I would. I have three children, one of whom attended for a short time and I would label their care borderline abusive. They called my 2 year old names for having a potty accident, there were several incidents of unsupervised physical altercations between the children, and often times the caregivers are not all present during the day. My son hated going and after several months we decided to pull him out and we then got an abusive letter from the owner telling us how horrible we are as parents and that our son would never grow up to have friends and that our "alternative" careers were going to ruin our children (my husband and I run a children's summer camp). It was a horrible, horrible experience. To this day my son still checks in to make sure he never has to go back to that awful place.
