I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son has been with Susan and Jason for about a year now. I am very confident about the security of my son there. She has very good morals and has good structure for the children.

What the person wrote below is garbage they are way off with their comments and has no truth to them.

Would HIGHLY recommed Creavtive Kids to anyone. As soon as you walk in the Severs and there staff make you feel like you and your kids are part of there family. My kids kids are 6 months and 2 years old. I have never once worried about my kids while they are at Creative Kids. When I pick my kids up I am given a report of what the kids did, what they ate, how long they napped,  ect. It is so nice to know about the kids day.

I would highly recommend Creative Kids Childcare for anyone looking for a wonderful childcare provider.  My wife and I did our due diligence in looking for a capable, caring provider.  Not only was Creative Kids Childcare highly recommended by our daughter's teachers at their school, but they looked to be the only childcare provider in the area that was state-certified.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Creative Kids Childcare is certified by the state, not like some of the other places where someone knew someone who watched kids.  I personally would not have someone watch my children with any less credentials.

Not only do Susan and Jason take a natural interest in my children's well-being, but they are extremely flexible in their schedules.  With enough notice, they will watch kids after 6:00 pm.  When my wife and I lived in Columbus we could not get a state-certified childcare facility to watch our children past 6:00 pm regardless of notice.  We do not abuse this priviledge, but it gives us peace of mind to know that if we get hung up at work, get behind an accident or just have a schedule conflict, Creative Kids Childcare will be flexible.  The same applies for dropping kids off early if need be.

There is absolutely nothing to complain about with Creative Kids Childcare.  They are school-recommended, state certified and priced right.  Even though my wife and I have to drive a little bit further to drop off our kids, in our opinion, it is worth the time and investment.

To tell the truth Sep 28, 2011

I would just like to start out by saying that my child has went to this daycare for about 7 years and I have never had any problems with Mrs. Sever or Mr. Sever! It sounds to me like someone is just trying to ruin her reputation!

Susan has always went above and beyond what is required of her. I never have to worry about my daughter when she is there, and I know that if she would happen to have an accident or get sick that Susan would call me right away.

As for them having poor family values, I have to disagree with that one too.. Susan and her husband have very strong family morals and values. They do not argue in front of people or disrespect each other!     (They may joke around and if you cant do that then I feel sorry for you)

They have been married for several years, raised a wonderful family together and attend church regularly (where is the bad morals in this) Nobody is perfect but if you consider their morals bad, then you must be a saint!

They not only put their kids first but they put the daycare kids first as well!! Susan always makes sure to include the kids for holidays and even celebrates their birthdays! As well as doing a food drive for a local family every year!

And I cant agree with her husband being a fat and lazy slob! He has a full time job and is very good with the kids. He helps get them on and off of the bus and spends time with them outside and still manages to work around the house and hold a full time job (dont know how you can get lazy out of that) I can thank him for helping my daughter with her homework on nights I have worked late too!

I am Grateful to have such a good daycare to take my child to! They are like family to us and I would recommend Creative Kids to anyone that asked.

I see that a "James" wrote this review and I have never met a "James" in the 7 years we have been going there!

If you ask me...Creative Kids Rocks!

I think it is very sad that someone could write such a lie and try to hurt an innocent person

Before enrolling my daughter to be in Susan's care; I first checked the local word of mouth around the Frankfort, OH area. The reviews weren't the best, but due to the price I decided to enroll my daughter anyhow.

Boy was that a horrid idea. First, the husband is a fat, disgusting, lazy slob. He's blatantly disrespectful to his wife in front of the children in the home. Secondly, Mrs. Susan Sever is just as bad. She swears at her children in front of her clients children, treats her husband like a he's nothing but complete garbage, and just all around poor, disgusting family values.

I would not recommend this family for daycare.

There's just nothing else I could say.
