As a parent of two children that have both had amazing experiences there, we have nothing but great things to say about Kidco.
Our oldest was there an an infant for about a year after he was born and then returned a few years later for both years of preschool. While there, he was given all of the attention and care you'd want either an infant or a preschooler to receive. He left there last year and moved onto Kindergarten, and the education he received in "Miss Julie's" class not only prepared him for Kindergarten, but actually had him well ahead of the curve compared to where a student should be at the beginning of Grade K. Additionally, the work that was put into helping him mature behaviorally and socially also played a significant part in his successful transition into Kindergarten.
Our youngest son just finished up his first year of preschool at Kidco and it has been a great social experience for him as well, which is the main focus of the first year of Pre-K from what I can tell. He has made many friends and speaks very highly of his teachers that have been wonderful to him. There is alot of time spend on creative projects, cooperative play, to build social skills and classroom behavior, as well as some very basic academics (shapes, colors, seasons, letter recognition and spelling and writing their first names). Although he'll be taking a break for the summer, he's already starting to spend a little time in the class that he'll be moving into next year, just to get him used to it. The fact that they're already working on the classroom transition for him speaks volumes about how well managed they are and how much they care about our children feeling comfortable about going there every day. We are both excited to watch him continue to learn and grow in year two at Kidco's Preschool program where he will be joining Miss Julie's class just like his big brother!
My wife and I were very selective 6 years ago when we chose to trust Kidco with our children and we have nothing but positive sentiments with the decision that we made to send them there. Their teachers are caring, responsible and professional and as the children get older into the preschool building, there is a clear and established curriculum that is followed on a regular basis. If you are looking for a place to bring your children that is clean, trustworthy, and well-established, then I would strongly recommend this place to anyone!
HORRIBLE FACILITY – This is a horrible facility! I once witnessed a teacher getting in a child's face and yell at her!!! THE NEXT DAY I REMOVED MY CHILD! THIS ESTABLISMENT DESERVES 0 STARS, its too bad 0 wasn't an option.
