I have used this provider for more than 6 months

This place has been the best for my children. The Director is the most caring individual I know, and professional as well. My children were ready for school. Even ahead of the game for school. I can’t say enough about this place!!

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

When we started at JBK over 2 years ago, my son was severely speech delayed. We had already done a year of speech therapy to no avail. Within a month, he was speaking full sentences. They helped so much with speech, potty training, and preparing him for kindergarten. They have also been so great with consistency in potty training my other child. My babies love it there and have THRIVED in this place.

If I could give this place zero stars, I 100% would. The owner, director and assistant director are incompetent and about as unprofessional as you can possibly be. And the employees follow their lead. If you want your child coming home with unexplained injuries multiple times, an obvious lack of supervision (staff on their phones all the time), having teachers yell at other staff and other students in front of them and a whole host of other unprofessional and unsafe issues, then this is your place.

This place is very unprofessional. No communication, students are not picked up on time from school, and then not given snack. The facility is not clean and my students come home smelling like smoke

If you want true kindergarten preparation, go to Love & Learn Preschool. They are wonderful, small private SCHOOL with extended day options. Loving staff, licensed and degreed teachers who tailor to fit individual child’s needs. Wonderful program.

I was happy with JBK kids at first when my granddaughter was taught by Miss Ashley. But when she was put in the 3 year old class I became very disappointed in the overall care that was given. Unless changes are made, I would not recommend.

I am so glad that you were happy with Miss Ashley. There are so many of our teachers that we wish we had clones of but sadly do not. There are teachers that are stronger in some areas than others. I’m sorry our 3s teacher wasn’t a good fit for your child. I’m sure had we known this we would have more than happy to move her to the 4s perhaps to try to get around the teacher issue if she was ready for that class of course. Sadly once they start school we can’t pick our children’s teachers and that is very hard for us parents I get it completely. I hope things worked out better in the end for your family

Disappointed Jun 17, 2015
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

If I could give this place zero stars, I certainly would. They have too many children for the staff. The ratio is terrible. The employees are very unprofessional, yelling at each other in front of the children. It seems most employees there simply work there to get free child care for their own children, and are not qualified in the least to be a true provider. The facility is in a severe state of disrepair except when its inspection time. The communication between staff and parents is minimal at best.

I’m so sorry to hear of your experience. Sadly for my staff they do not receive free childcare here for the fear of what you mentioned, we do not only want staff that is working for childcare, we want staff that want to be here. Staff that works in childcare have to be there for the right reason cause there is no money in childcare. The yelling I’m not sure, but we have video and audio now all throughout, so that is watched greatly, the same as ratios. We now make sure management is there at all time. Thank u fit your response.
