I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Ms. Easterling has been my child’s daycare provider for years. My child looks forward to going everyday, as she is very warm and welcoming to her. She helps the kids with their homework, does activities with them, and some outside play when the weather is nice. Another plus is that all the kids play well together! Ms. Easterling also keeps great contact within the parent group and that is great to have.

Our experience with Ms. Darlene has been EXCEPTIONAL!!! Our daughter started with Ms. Darlene at 6 months old and now she is 2 years old. With every passing year, we have been impressed and extremely pleased with the high quality of child care that our daughter continues to receive. The nurturing the kids receive is amazing. It is really a good feeling to know that our child is in good hands.

Ms. Easterling has been taking care of my son since he was three months old and he is still here at eight years old. All of the kids love her. She treats all of the children like her own, helps with homework, and takes them on trips. I appreciate all of the love and support she has shown over the years.

Not Happy Oct 09, 2018
I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I am looking to move my child to a different provider. I wish I would have read the reviews prior to signing with the provider. My experience with this provider has been subpar to date.

I love Kid's First Daycare My daughter has been at this daycare since she was 6 months old now my daughter is 6. I have nothing but great things to stay about Kids First Day Care. She loves and nourishes the kids psychically and mentally. My daughter loves attending Kids First Daycare even though my daughter is in school now she still attends Kids First in the summer and the days school is closed also on the weekends. Being a single mother Kids First really works with your schedule, she has great communication and we love her to pieces.

Unhappy Aug 21, 2018
I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

If I could give 0 stars I would. Does not care for the well being of the children. Calls children out their name. Closes daycare without advanced notice. I took my infant out. Never would recommend.

I am truly sadden that I was unable to support a small local black business due to lack of respect, honesty, and professionalism. I called this facility to schedule a tour and as I was speaking with the owner she was unprofessional and disorganized. She could hardly tell me the times she had available for me to come. I later interviewed one of the parents and couldn't believe what she told me. She said the daycare provider was very dishonest and her home was extremely warm as if her AC didn't work in the summer time. So hot that the kids would sometimes have to go sit outside. Due to this she submitted a notice letting the provider know that she would be withdrawing her child in upcoming weeks. The daycare then provider lied to her and told her that the daycare was closed two days out of the week but she was really open for business. She lied to the young due to being upset with her from withdrawing her child. Prior to this happening the provider also told this young mother that there were things she couldn't do such as take her other kids to the pool because she had to watch her infant. A daycare provider should never make their parents feel like bringing their kids is a hinderance to the others.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I have used this daycare provider for sometime now and i didn't receive the quality care i want for my child. The daycare provider is not honest, and reliable. I saw a few parents who removed their child out of this facility and were unhappy with the care that was provided.

Signed.

I have used Kids First Daycare since my daughter was 6 months. Now my daughter is 4 years old. I love Ms. Easterling she's very professional, caring, loving towards all the children in her daycare. I would recommend her services to all of my friends and family.
