I have 2 grandchildren at Kidzone. Both are very well cared for and look forward to going to school. My 3 year old grand daughter loves her teacher and talks about her all the time. The center is clean, safe, well organized and friendly. The staff appears to genuinely care for the children. I am so happy they are in a place that I can trust to care for them while Mom and Dad are at work.

As parents, we all worry about our children. It seems like just yesterday when we came to Kidzone with our daughter and had a hard time leaving her in the care of others. We quickly found out that the individuals caring for her through out the day are a special group of people. To describe the environment at Kidzone I use the words: family, friendly, academic, structured, dedicated, and safe. The curriculum was focused on learning while having fun from the two-year-old program up through Pre-Kindergarten. As a parent and public school teacher, I give credit to the teachers and staff who have prepared my daughter for the high level math and reading skills that she will be faced with in elementary school. She has grown both academically and socially in the hands of her teachers. The teachers have certainly challenged her and reinforced problem solving skills to build her critical thinking. Kidzone has provided her with a solid core fundamental academic foundation. The repetition of the daily routine built confidence and promoted leadership in my child. The thing we feel is most significant is the dedicated staff. All of the teachers and staff that have worked with our daughter have always been positive and looking for ways to continually improve and educate the children. She always comes home with a new song to sing, yoga pose to show, sight words that she recognizes, etc. I know that Kidzone has helped shape her into a well-rounded child. Kidzone's directors, Mr. Larry and Mrs. Lisa have been very accommodating to our family. I appreciate their desire to build relationships with the families and the local elementary schools. We can tell that their number one priority are the children! Our daughter has been fortunate enough to have spent the last four years at Kidzone. We feel that Kidzone has given her the opportunity to experience that learning is fun at an early age. This is important as a baseline for her success as she continues her academic career. We will truly miss Kidzone now that she is entering Kindergarten, and would recommend this center to anyone looking for excellent childcare.

Since the old director Beth left the center, the pastor\owner has taken over and seems to be more worried about money and technology and not his employees. He has not yet hired a new director and seems to have multiple people fill the position. Most employees are great and truly care for the children, but seem to feel unappreciated. For that reason a lot of staff has left. The play ground is horrible the fence has a huge hole leading down toward the road which is on a hill. This has been brought to the owners attention but nothing has been done about it. When talking to Larry (the owner) about my child, he was very unapproachable and shoved me off on another employee. I would not recommend this center to anyone despite the deceivingly low prices. Remember... YOU get for what YOU pay for.

I have never in my life seen a business so poorly run. The owner/director is more worried about computer systems and new technology that he is not paying any mind to what is going on in the classrooms behind closed doors. I've seen kids mistreated and if I didn't see "it written in the handbook that we cant do that" then I guess it was ok as long as it was not technically a written rule that they not be mistreated the way that they are. There is always a blind eye to what "management" does not want to deal with and they are very close minded if it is brought to their attention. I understand that it is a business and you make money from said business but when you are handling other peoples children you have to be there more for the kids and I did not see that AT ALL... Grant it kid zone has SOME excellent employees but instead of trying to make the center and employees better for the children the main focus is put on ways to get more money and convenience for the owner. Kidzone has lost many employees over the past couple of months so if you decide to send your child there be prepared for a lot of inconsistencies. And for the record I worked there and my child attended as well.

There is a new director, Beth is no longer there and the center is suffering because of it. The kids are taken care of but the staff are dropping like flies because they are not treated right. If I were you I woud try to go to another center even if it cost a little more. The play ground is falling apart there is a huge whole between the fence and the ground, a sharp pvc pipe sticking out of the ground where the kids play. With that being said I hope you find the right place for your child without putting them in harms way.

My children didn't need to attend daycare until my youngest child was 3 years old. Having never had to place them in a someone else's care, I was very hesitant to do so. The staff at Kidzone is simply amazing. Every single person in that center welcomes you with open arms and warm hearts. The director, Beth, was always readily available at any time. We cannot say enough good things about this center and we highly recommend it to our friends and family.

I always hesitate to give anyone a perfect score though I believe it's very possible in this case to be that close. I have 2 children at this center and they just love it. Overall it is a great family atmosphere with loving professional care givers. The director is always hands on and approachable and give the parents the time and assistance whenever needed. I can not say enough about the infant room and wonderful staff that takes care of my six month old. I really feel like I made a good choice to send both of my children to Kidzone.
