Very happy Mar 01, 2018
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I love this center, my children were new to the daycare setting and were having trouble with separation. After trying other centers in the area we went to Kountry Kids and I'm glad we did! Ms Crystal and staff have gone above and beyond to make the transition easier for my kids. After going for 8 months now all they talk about is how they love Ms Crystal. We could not ask for a better owner or director. Would recommend to anyone

Disappointed Oct 04, 2015

Very poor communication between teachers and parents. Teachers seem to be unqualifed and unprepared to aupport students. They are unfair and inconsitent when it comes to reinforcing rules, especially when they have their own sons in the classroom.
