My daughter has been at KRK since 6 months old. She is now 19 months and is a student in the Penguin Room. As a Cobb County kindergarten teacher and former pre-k teacher a developmentally appropriate early learning center was very important to me. I wanted her to be exposed and engaged in learning activities but more importantly, I wanted her to be a kid!!!! KRK meets all of those needs and more. They are educating the WHOLE child! She is loved (adored even), engaged and hitting milestones early!! As a working mom, I feel involved and informed with the daily KidReports with detailed lesson descriptions and PICTURES!!! I love getting the notifications in real time on my smart watch!! I feel connected to my child during a busy work day!! The management and staff not only meet the needs of my child, but also meet the needs of a first time mom!! They are always quick to comfort, hug and give advice when I need it!! It is home for us and I couldn't imagine a better place for my family to spend the next 5 years!!

My son absolutely loves Kids R Kids. He's bonded with every teacher he's had, and the teachers are very nurturing. He's learned so much since he's been enrolled in the program. My husband and I absolutely love the "extras" they offer compared to other childcare centers in the area with comparable rates. The only area we hope to see improvement in is front office friendliness. My husband and I both on several occasions have walked into the school without being acknowledged by front office staff. Some days we don't even receive the minimal acknowledgement of a wave. I'm always pleasant during drop of and speak to whomever is at the front desk, and I'm not always guaranteed the same respect in return. The teachers are definitely the reason we've been here for 2 years + . We hope to see more smiles and welcomes from the front office staff. If you're looking for great teachers, a great facility and a stimulating curriculum I'd seriously recommend Kids r Kids West Cobb.

We love Kids R Kids! Both of my children have attended since being in the 2s class, and my daughter has graduated to Kindergarten and attends the After School Program. After 2 years in the Private Pre-K class, my daughter is testing within the top 5-10% in the nation and I know the awesome teachers at Kids R Kids are part of the reason. There is a desire to teach, a creativity to the lessons, and a general affection for the kids that helps make the time away easier. My son is now in the Private Pre-K program and I can't wait to see how far he'll grow. Facility is clean, I get smiles from everyone down the halls, and most know our family, extended family, and have a genuine interest in our lives. It's such a family atmosphere! Concerns are addressed, notification of issues are timely, and so many fun activities for the kids from Make A Wish Art Shows, to Sprayground parties, movie nights, and local pizza place dinners. Ms. Jen, the director, is amazing, as is her entire staff. Her first requirement is love the kids and it shows!

The Kids R Kids on Barrett Parkway was recommended to me by a friend whose daughter attended their pre-K program. My friend gave me frequent updates on how his daughter was learning all the essential skills to help her succeed in higher grades. I have been pleased to see and feel the warmth of the teachers and staff ever since my son has began attending the lottery funded pre-K. He gets the opportunity to socialize with other children, and learn the respect and boundaries needed for healthy relationships. He is learning so much and is excited to tell me about his day when he gets in the car. I also never thought he would let me go as easy when it came time to drop him off each morning. He is willing to give me a hug and kiss and tell me I can leave now. The teachers are always by the door when the children get picked up to give a brief report for the day, and they keep a very skilled eye on them. The front desk staff is always cheery as well, and willing to answer all my questions when they arise.

This is my child's second experience with pre-k and it has been phenomenal. The teachers and staff are great. Very friendly and good at communicating. It is a well organized and very clean facility. Most of all, I've seen my daughter grow and blossom into a new and improved person in just 2 weeks of being there! Thank you!

I am the proud mother of two daughters who went through Kids R Kids West Cobb. I have been so pleased and impressed. My oldest daughter is now in middle school and is taking advanced classes. I owe so much of this to the early start that she was given at Kids R Kids. They have the best Private Pre-K program around. This year they have added the smart board, abc mouse, and a zono sanitech system. When it came time to chose a Pre-K program for my secound daughter this year the choice was easy. Kids R Kids West Cobb!

I love Kids R Kids #35. My daughter started going there at 2/12 she is now 4. It was her first experience being away from me and very difficult for me to drop her off that first day. The teachers are patient and kind and very supportive. They understand there may be just as much TLC needed for the parent as there is for the child who has never been away from mom or dad. I know that while my child is at KRK she is in a safe, clean environment, engaged in fun learning activities, given postitive encouragement and is happy. I appreciate the friendly staff as well as the owners who are hands on and on site on a daily basis addressing the needs of the school itself from maintenance and regular upkeep to implementing wonderful resources such as smart boards, ABC mouse.com, watch me grow, and fun field trips. This school does not seek accredidations just to stay in business, they truly care about providing each child with the best in early childhood education. A great school for my child.
