The school/daycare is nice. I personally haven't had any issues (I have 2 kids here) and management listens. The prices are really good for the area and I feel my kids are safe at the school. My LO is in a lot of affordable extra curricular stuff and we have really lucked out with teachers thus far. They care and both LOs are learning. Sorry if the review is not that much help. Im a teacher that use to work daycare so I see things a bit differently. Teaching is hardwork. Just stop by the school and see for yourself. Cheers

I would not recommend this facility. My child went to this location and there were problems from the start. I had to call the corporate office within the first 3 months of his attendance. His teachers were using his diapers and wipes on other children. I realized this because they were asking me to replenish his supply all too frequently. Then, he had a citric acid sensitivity (not allergy) that caused diaper rashes so I asked the staff not to give him citrus fruit. There were several times that I would get his daily sheet with mandarin oranges listed as part of his meal(s). As a result, he developed a few diaper rashes from their failure to comply with my request. I continued to give this facility the benefit of the doubt because over time he did have a few good teachers (Mary, Beverly, Sue Ann, & Amber). However, turn over is very high at this facility for both teaching staff as well as management. There have been at least 3 or 4 different directors since 2013. The current director, Sasha, is very unprofessional. She does not like to speak with parents directly about issues concerning their children. She also tends to have a condescending verbal tone if you do happen to speak with her. Ultimately I would seek other child care if possible. This facility claims to have a curriculum, but via the Watch Me Grow camera system, it appears that they have lots of free play time.I would like for my child to have some structure and education incorporated into his child care.

We attended the school for 4 weeks. They called me for every little thing my child did. The staff did not know how to handle situations. waste of money and time! They did not have any knowledge as far as toliet training, or how to handle a child for that matter

Nice remodeled facility. More boutique style center. Staff was friendly. Rates were super high for the area. I am finding that all Kids R Kids centers are high regardless of location. Willing to work with you on start up rates but could not guarantee the rates for 1 year or what the increase would be going into second year - this is problematic for budget conscious consumer. No GA PRE-K. chk out other daycare reviews by consumerwaste. Always lock your rates at a minimum of 12 months.

We had a pretty good experience with the Ga prek program here. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of flexibility in the GA pre-k program. And the center was a stickler to the minute about being late or leaving early even for Doctor appointments or when my child was sick. It was overly structured for 4 year olds compared with others I'd experienced with my older kids. The Ga Prek program seems to be targeted to giving a discount to already working parents that have their kids in full time day care. If you're interested in giving your child some structure to prepare for Kindergarten and just need a little break, it's not worth the hassle. I'd pay a little bit more and do a three or 4 half-day's somewhere else outside of the GA prek here. Otherwise, the staff were consistent and qualified. The center was always clean and bright.

We toured a few daycares today looking for a place for our infant. This was by far the worst one we saw. The A/C wasn't working in the 2yo room, and the lady giving the tour just shrugged it off. In fact, the lady giving the tour really didn't seem to know anything about the place, and left every door open as we walked through, leaving the place totally open to children walking out or random people walking in. There was one girl laying in a room by herself...just laying there...with no one attending to her. She looked about 7 or so. I think I would quit my job to stay home with my child before I stuck her in a place like this. The rates are ridiculous, and the service is sub-par. A 16 year old on the phone with her boyfriend would do a better job.

My 2 kids have only been going here for a few weeks, but we already love it! It is so nice for a mom to know her babies are in good hands when she heads offf to work! I especially love the girls who work in the baby room! Thanks to all the employees for all the attention they provide for our children.

My son usually hates summer camps. He is almost 7. This is the first time ever he is ready to go out the door before we are. The people there take great care of him. They are constanty teaching those kids newer and greater things. Keep up the good work!
