I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

I tried to get my foster son into this daycare. I've heard wonderful reviews, I toured it, it was amazing! I was so excited that out of nowhere a spot for him opened up yesterday. I immediately went to secure it. DSS provides daycare vouchers for children in foster care. It doesn't always cover the total fees but it is a nice help. They only are provided if both parents work, for obvious reasons. Being I'm now on a teachers schedule I do not go back to work until middle of August. BUT to get this spot I'd have to enroll him Monday.

DSS was so gracious to agree to start vouchers on August 1 and be billed separately for the last 2 weeks of July in order to ensure he got this spot. All they asked was if Kids R Kids could possibly delay his start date until August 1st, but if not, it wouldn't be an issue and he could still start on Monday. The very sweet lady that toured me, Michelle, stated she would ask the owner Marty.

Here lies my hurt.

Marty is explained the situation by Michelle. He turns to me and tells me "you need to go home and see if you can afford daycare." I was taken back by this statement but thought maybe he misunderstood, so I explained the situation again. He once again told me to go home to see if I could "even afford for him to attend." I assured him we were fully capable of affording this daycare and with or without DSS vouchers I would start him Monday to hold the spot even though I don't technically need a daycare for another month. Once again I explained why I was asking, as foster care is in the mix. He again tells me to "what you're asking is very unfair being you don't even know if you can afford daycare. Go home and work on your finances."

At that point I gave up our coveted infant spot to this elite daycare. Might I add we were standing in the front desk, around every parent that was coming to pick their child up at peak pick up time where they could all hear.

I have never been so embarrassed or disrespected. Even if I could not afford daycare, how dare he say what he said where he said it. We are on vouchers so my child isn't good enough for your daycare?!?? There are numerous children at this daycare on vouchers, some due to foster care, some not. Needless to say, I'm glad to see this side of him prior to enrolling my son.

My husband called to speak with him about the situation which he refused to speak with him or meet with him in person. I'm very thankful to have learned his true colors prior to placing my child her and financing his discriminatory attitude

Unhappy Mommy Nov 11, 2010

My child attended Kids R Kids for just over a year. For the most part, he had a wonderful experience there, however, when he reached his third birthday he transitioned up into a new classroom. There is a very high rate of turnover for the employees at Kids R Kids, and the teacher in the the three year old classroom was new. I was told that she had many years of experience in child care, but she neglected to do some very basic things for my child.

When my husband and I expressed our displeasure with her methods to her, she assured us she would correct the issue, but she did not. We then took our concerns to the director of the school, and after several complaints we were finally granted a meeting with the director and the teacher, but the problems still persisted even after the meeting.

Ultimately we ended up withdrawing our child because we were not happy with the teacher's methods, and both the teacher and the administration seemed unconcerned about correcting the problems. This is a five star daycare, and while there are many positive attributes, my husband and I felt as if we should not have to be fighting so hard to get the staff to acknowledge very basic needs.
