I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I love bringing my children to Kidz University. They are well taken care of. They learn so much. Every one is friendly and professional. Beautiful site. It's the least expensive daycare you can find. Meals are included. Cameras all over making sure our babies are safe.Finding this daycare is the best thing that I ever did. I highly recommend it.

I am an employee

I currently work here !! I can’t describe how bad it is working here and only getting paid $10 an hour and paid every 2 weeks it’s wack . On top of that all the older staff here they take up for each other and the other ones are left in the dark . The owner is a liar and she’s eve she’s sends out emails shading some of the employees I can’t wait to leave this establishment I’m almost finish here , Rosa , Angie , molly , Diana , flo are the the worst staff here and all the younger staff . Angie does not care about her employees and it’s sad nor does she care about the kids who’s been touched inappropriately by the staff a lot has been going on here and someone needs to do something about it the state needs to come in and help .

The center is the best for learning. My daughter is now 3 and has learned so much being there since only a couple months old.

I am the owner

annaorysia... sorry for your experience. The week you toured the center, we were in the beginning stages of renovations. Also, that was the last day of our summer program and children were involved in a family day picnic. We were technically in the beginning of our week long renovation.

I would like to suggest that you come back for a tour as you'll be pleasantly surprised of how great our center and staff is. We take awesome care of children and provide children with nurturing and loving staff. We have received several compliments from feeder schools where our children attend regarding how advance and smart our children are. When children come to Kidz U, parents are often surprised at how children don't want to go home at the end of the day. Our children love it here!!!

Please feel free to stop in and visit our website at

Thank You!

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

the pictures on this site are probably from when they opened. I walked through this site recently. Not enough staff to children, filthy and run down. Bookbacks all over the floor, mop closets open with access to hazardous chemicals. Kitchen looked clean but was not at use when I was there. The instructors do not seem like they continually keep up with their education requirements or have full educational requirements. I understand this is a state subsidized school but it does not compare to a privately run facility. It is a slum.

My child has been attending this facility for over a year. I rate it 2 starts since they provide meals and my child has learned a lot during her time here. However since attending this school my kid has had bite marks all over, a scar under her chin, busted lip & what seems to be a choke mark on her neck. Everyone is too busy to know how the children get injured. If you want your child to be hit by other children then by all means bring them here. Not worth it, bunch of ghetto ass parents & teachers with lack of respect to raise there children appropriately
