My son has been attending Kiddie Academy since the summer of 2013. My wife and I are happy to say that we absolutely love our experience thus far. From the moment you enter the school you get the feeling you're at home. While the staff and Director still maintain a very professional atmosphere they are friendly, loving and attentive to our son's needs. His teacher always seems to be interested in him and what he does on the weekends and in our family as well. Our son loves to come to school here and is learning a lot as he makes new friends in his classroom. We would gladly recommend Kiddie Academy of Boca to any of our friends and family members with kids.

At first I loved the daycare. My son began here at 5 months old. He was exclusively breastfed and refused bottles. I would go over to nurse him every 2 hours. My first issue with the management was being told not to nurse in their facility. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! I brushed it off and obeyed by nursing my son in my hot car for the following few months. In their infant room they allow the parents to bring food from home. This was great because my son eats a strict natural food and organic diet. When he turned one they threatened to take away my right to bring my son's food from home with their reason being "We don't supervise the children closely enough to ensure another child won't eat what you bring" -Zeida (owner). Willing to admit you bluntly aren't watching small children while they are eating food...This made me incredibly uncomfortable as it would any parent. After reviewing the nutritional values listed on the food they feed the kids I decided to ask my pediatrician what to do. CORN SYRUP was the first ingredient listed in their apple sauce (which is routinely fed to infants as young as 4 months, disgusting) The doctor agreed with my position and wrote a letter to the daycare without question. They finally agreed to allow me to bring his food from home. Upon his first day in the toddler room I dropped him off around 8:30am with a sippy cup of water, 2 snacks and lunch. I get a call at around 2pm from Michelle in management that my son was fussy and I didn't bring food for him that day. OUTRAGED I rushed over to the daycare to find his lunch exactly where it was supposed to be, on his name assigned shelf. So you mean to tell me you didn't feed or hydrate my one year old child from 8:30am until 2:00pm, THAT IS 5.5 hours, in normal routine that is 1 snack and lunch that the other kids would have eaten within that time. The absolute last straw with this HORRIBLE management... On December 12th I notified the Zeida (owner) and Michelle (her assistant) that my son would be attending late on Friday and the following Monday. I attempted to drop him off on Monday at 11:30am only to be told that they didn't have enough teachers for me to drop him off and that I had to have him there by 8:00am. In turn I missed work. Firstly why wasn't in mentioned when I was telling them he would be late and secondly WHAT DID I PAY $260 A WEEK FOR? At this point I gave them my 2-week written notice that I would be looking for another daycare. I attempted to drop him off the following day since by contract I must pay for the following 2 weeks. Only to find that they locked me out of their keypad system. I wasn't able to drop my son off and there was NO management at the facility to correct the issue. The teachers who were on duty recommended I not leave him there causing me to miss work yet again. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE management. These are only half of the incidents I've had with them. Don't trust them with your pride and joy. The management doesn't care about your children's health or wellbeing.
