My children have been attending Just Kidding Around for the past 8 years (took a small break from them to have my youngest closer to my work) but soon returned to the comforts of knowing that my children were well taken care of. I have never seen a more caring staff and love the fact that I can call any time and check in on my daughter. They are easy to work with and have always been willing to work with a parent when something happens even when many try and take advantage of their generosity. You will NEVER find a perfect day care but if you want a place for your children to go and be loved and cared for then this is the place for you!!! Don't believe any bad reviews that you read about Just Kidding Around. Some parents need to get a reality check about their children. It is not a day cares place to raise your children, its their place to teach and care for them when you are working. Lucky for the parents of this day care, your kids get LOVE TOO!!
I was a parent at JKA for 5 years before I started working there 2 years ago. After only working there 2 years I am still considered "low man on the totem pole." Accorrding to state licensening,JKA has the lowest turn over ratio in the Ellis county area. First let me say, the owners of this daycare are some of the best you will find in the business. I can personally say that we do not have one high school age teacher that works for us. All of our teachers are highly trained and qualified to be with childen. Our company policy is that when we are doing outside activities that we must bring the children inside every 20 minutes water and a cooling off period. We also do bathroom breaks before, during and after outside activities. I have never witnessed a child being told they could not go use the restroom. The one and only instance I know of is that of a Pre-K age child who was not potty trained and was still in diapers and had an accident on the playground during afternoon outside time. Our bathrooms were completely remodeled 2 months ago and we have received great reviews from several parents over them. As far as a child leaving the building, THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED!
I'm sorry to say that I would not recommend this daycare facility. While the owners are some of the nicest people I've ever met, that does not make for a good management staff. They are grossly unorganized with record keeping and sign in/sign out tracking records. I have witnessed staff yelling at children to get them to comply. My own child was not allowed to get a drink of water during recess on a hot day and got heat exhaustion. Another time, my child was not allowed to use the restroom during recess, resulting in a potty accident and the child was left in the dirty shorts. We only found out when we discovered the wet shorts ourselves. Another child was allowed to wander outside and made it to the front parking lot before their absence was noticed. This facility is located on a main road with a speed limit of 45-55!! The restrooms have been observed many times as unsanitary and smelling of urine w/sticky floors. The staff is constantly changing, so I never knew who was watching my child and the morning teacher did not communicate with the afternoon teacher, so I could never get a straight answer on how my child's day was. Also they tend to staff HS students during the summer.
I have two children that have attended this daycare for over 2yrs. This is an excellent daycare. I have no complaints the management is Awesome and the Staff is fantastic. Any time my children have a good or even bad day as most kids do, I am well informed of their full day and all the events that have taken place. all kids rooms and play areas are always neat and tidy. The bathrooms are well kept up. My youngest child has learned so much since he's started. They've even took out the time and work with him with his speech. They are very happy here. When my kids arrive they are signed in and when they leave they are signed out.. I LOVE THIS DAYCARE & WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANY & EVERYBODY!!!!!!!
