My daughter attends this location. Previously she was in another daycare that I was disappointed with. So far, it's an okay daycare. Staff is friendly and there seems to be a reasonable diversity among children. This is a 4 star so it won't have the same standards as a Goddard School or Brighter Horizons, so it wouldn't be fair to compare to that place. The good parts are that the staff seems nice (I have not had any issues with them), equipment seems to be updated fairly often, and central location. The stuff I am not particularly fond of is use of too many packaged foods, closed off classrooms (children learn by watching other children), and I get the feeling the staff just isn't quite up to par for education levels I would expect. One parent commented to me that this is a daycare, and that is all I should expect. So maybe I do expect too much? Overall, I would recommend this place for a daycare. If you plan on sending your child to a private school for 1st grade, they will likely have a little catching up to do, but your child will be perfectly fine for public school.

As a parent of a child who attended this center until she left for Kindergarten, I am in total disagreement with the two recent posts. I can say our experience and that of many other families we know was very positive. We found the owners in particular to be friendly and accommodating from the beginning! We felt comfortable with them and could tell they truly cared about their center, staff, and the children. While she was there the owners had Smart Boards put in which were great, and they added Spanish and music classes too at no additional cost so the comments about the owners spending habits seem misguided. Most importantly the teachers my daughter had from toddlers on up were amazing, and we feel she was very well prepared academically for school. I would agree with menu improvements, but overall all the good way outweighs anything else. We would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for childcare.

I have had two daughters here (one current and one now 8yrs). To be honest, I am shocked by some of the reviews. This is a 1st rate daycare. We were at a different place prior to this one, so I can appreciate what we have, including: *The teachers are very involved and always coming up with fun things, such as wearing pjs to school for a Polar Express party. *Extracurricular activities during the school day so you don't have to take them elsewhere. Includes soccer and dance. We do dance and love it ($32.50/mo). *The regular curriculum is good. My 8 yr old was v. well prepared for Kindergarten. *The 2 owners are very involved and care very much about you and your child. Oldest daughter has food allergies. Owners personally reviewed all foods and provided alternative for foods she couldn't have. *Pro-rated part time schedules *Summer camp - Each week is a different summer theme. Lots of activities such as pony rides, bounce castle, and basketball performer. My negatives: fresher foods, less frozen, more milk; others say they call a lot when kids are not really sick, but this has never happened to me. Owners are strict but fair about business/money matters.

My daughter attends Kiddie Academy of Brier Creek and we could not be happier. The teachers are great and really seem to care about our daughter and her well being. The owners have been fantastic and very flexible with our needs. They are the only school in the area that we talked to that was willing to accomodate a part time schedule and an unusual part time schedule at that; Tuesday - Thursday. We were at another daycare prior to finding Kiddie Academy that we were not happy with at all so finding the folks here has been a blessing. I did not want to leave my infant daughter with anyone but I have really come to trust Kiddie Academy and feel comfortable with their level of care.
