My son has been going to Growing Kids since he was 4 months old. We have been very pleased with the staff that have cared for him in each of the classrooms he has been in. The director has always given my wife and I much needed guidance as we were first time parents. As we have baby #2 on the way, we look forward to continuing to be a part of Growing Kids Childcare.

I came on here yesterday and there were 13 reviews and the childcare was rated 2 stars! Somehow in 12 hours there are only 9 ratings and its a 3 star rating now! Very negative enviroment! Glad to get my son out of there! Like others have said nice facility, but very unpleasant enviroment! Good luck to any future parents!

I can't believe such a nice facility can have such a terrible environment! The staff are not friendly, always negative, and never smile! My daughter has been there for quite sometime now and I don't feel like she has bonded with any of the staff! I get told from one staff she didn't nap and another staff member will tell me she had a great nap!! I don't get it?! Do they not know who my child is! By now my daughter should have built a connection with someone! I went in one morning and there was only one member with 12 kids. Two little boys were fighting and the staff was changing a diaper! I waited until she was done because she couldn't watch the other kids until she was done!! I never know how my daughters day went because the staff will say, "I don't know, I haven't been here most of the day!!" Well I sure would like to know! If its something negative that she did they sure make sure to tell me!! Don't bring your kids here!!!! We are stuck in a contract and don't have the extra money to pay for a daycare she's not attending!

I worked at Growing Kids and was very surprised at how different things are "behind-the-scenes" compared to the front that they portray to the paretns. However, I do feel that if parents did their research, it would not be hard to see that this place has a VERY high employee turnover, the staff are very young and many are untrained in how to engage, discipline, and care for children. The room in which I worked, an employee would scream at the children on a daily basis. This was before I had children. I know have two children and I cried myself to sleep regularly because I was terrified that all daycares are like Growing Kids. I would never send my children there after having worked there. And I would NEVER EVER recommend this as a place for an infant or toddler. My girls are at a wonderful daycare now. Good childcare centers exist, but Growing Kids is NOT one of them. Please, I've been "behind-the-doors" - do not send your children there.
