Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective
June 15, 2015
The majority of the teachers at Kids Corner are native Spanish-speakers; many, with limited English-speaking and writing skills. Therefore, they may be more effective at teaching native Spanish-speaking students than English-speakers like my child. On the positive side, she did learn a lot academically and developed her Spanish-speaking skills while at this preschool.

My daughter attended preschool at Kids Corner ("KC") for a semester. In terms of academics and facilities, KC is the "Rolls Royce" of preschools in the Doral area of Miami, and you pay a hefty premium for the privilege. (The fees at KC are 25-50% higher than at other preschools in the area). I was not surprised to learn that KC was founded by a former Bright Horizons administrator, since it is run in very much the same way - The facilities are clean, the equipment and toys are well-maintained, and the school follows the highly recommended Creative Curriculum and uses the latest software to track your child's progress. My daughter did learn a lot in her short time there. However, KC gets a failing grade when it comes to ethnic and cultural diversity. The Center has classes from infants through VPK (Pre-K), but my daughter was the ONLY African-American child in the entire school. And on top of that, she was one of only a handful of students for whom Spanish was not their native language. Granted, there is a substantial population of Spanish-speakers in Miami, but KC takes this to the extreme, and is not reflective of the cultural and racial melting pot that is Miami. Although no one at KC said or did anything overtly, the Center clearly caters to "Anglo," Spanish-speaking families. This attitude comes all the way from the top, as we found KC's director to be very stand-offish with both us and our daughter, but very warm and friendly to those families with a similar linguistic and ethic background. (The Assistant Director is a sweetheart, however). If this wasn't enough to make our daughter feel like she didn't fit in, she started coming home and repeating certain racially/culturally insensitive and inappropriate comments made to her by the teachers in her classroom. And it was starting to have a negative effect on her self-image. Needless to say, we removed her from KC after only one semester. She now attends another preschool which, while not as "ritzy" as KC, has a population of kids, teachers and families that more accurately reflects the racial and cultural diversity of South Florida. Overall, Kids Corner is a very good preschool on paper, but is only a good fit in reality for "Anglo" Hispanic/Latino children and their families. I would NOT recommend it if you don't fit this ethnic/cultural profile.

My child went to Kids Corner for two years. My advise is: "Keep your child away!" This is like a military style childcare. They have excessive and arbitrary rules that will protect them (the owners, not even the teachers!), and will treat your child like he/she is in a military school with excessive discipline and expectations beyond their young years. The empathy toward kids and parents is very little. They are also one of the most expensive in Doral, and if you think that is enough, it is not. They have invented every possible way to get your money, they are shameless!

My daughter was in this school for 2 years, she enjoyed and learned a lot. Excellent academic program. The school has wonderful installations (separated playground for ages), excellents teachers and a strong principal who cares all details. Now my daughter has the best preparation for kindergarten. I recommend this school, we love it!

I loved this school. My daughter attended this school for 2 years and they really prepared her for kindergarden. This school is really more like our extended family. If I have any more children, they will definitly attend.

This is a wonderful preschool. My son just finished his preschool class and will be entering VPK in August. The teachers are loving and attentive, and they encourage the kids to learn in a fun way. The school grounds are immaculate, the playground area/equipment is very well maintained; hygiene is of the utmost importance there. I highly recommend to all my friends, and I will certainly enroll my younger son next year.
