Director of Destiny Kid Academy I have decided it is time to write from our point of view. First of all, when parents are asked to find another Daycare because of their child's behavior problems in school they become disgruntled and very negative towards the school. We never ask a child to leave without first putting in to place a behavior plan which requires the cooperation of the parents. If after several weeks this does not work they are asked to leave so that all the children in the class may have the opportunity to learn without disruption for the other kids safety. If a child is moved to another class it is because we are trying to find a spot where it may be a better fit for him. We will also do this before we ask them to leave. We definitely are not a babysitting facility, our children have a schedule - curriculum with lesson plans that are followed. Most of the Children when leaving the Academy for public or private school test 1 year or more above their grade level. Teachers only use cell phones to call the Lead Teacher or the Director when they need help in the classroom. We watch on camera and they are NOT on their cell phones for any other reason.
By far the worst daycare I have ever had to encounter. The director is very negative, my child was always in different classes, I saw teachers on cell phones. My child didn't learn anything there. It's basically a babysitting facility that wants to get paid. Think twice before thinking to enroll in this daycare!!
Destiny Kids Academy has been a loving, caring and nurturing environment that fosters Christian principals. The food served has to follow guidelines already set in place. The choices are no different than other schools and are exactly what the kids may eat when away from the Academy. Perhaps looking at the big picture will help. "WAY TO GO" Destiny as you keep our loved ones SAFE and SECURE. Thank You for teaching, training and positioning our children for success.
In response to the last review on the meals served at Destiny Kid Academy, I am the food program manager and we are participants in the CACFP program and all of our meals, with the exception of our morning snack, this program helps pay for. They tell us what foods we can and can not purchase and all of our meals have to have certain elements from the food groups for them to be approved for us to serve. as for morning snack, because we serve breakfast we do not have to serve a morning snack but that is something we choose to do for our children and we do our best not to serve snacks that have a lot of sugar even then. I have been with the Academy for almost 7yrs., the amount of time the Academy has been open, and we have never had a parent complain about our menu. Our parents are always welcome to ask questions if they have one about our menu are they are certainly welcome to bring food for their child if they don't like what we serve. I do my best to put together 1) meals that will meet the requirements of the food program and 2) in meeting those requirements, meals I feel our children will eat so that money is not wasted. I just wanted to give a truthful perspective .
I've picked my daughter up on multiple occasions and have not been pleased with the small overcrowded rooms. The meals offered are loaded with sugar and very little nutritional value (especially for growing toddlers). Breakfast was Lucky Charms one day, Pop Tarts the next , cheese toast? Mid morning snack is Jelly Sandwich and water, pop tarts again. Lunch was Sausage links, hash-browns, mandarin oranges and pancakes? This is teaching and promoting obesity and poor health habits at 2 years old. They shouldn't be allowed to operate like this.
Totally agree with all of the reviews. Me and my husband went to this school while seeking child care for our son. When we walked in the lady in the front was on the phone arguing with someone and looked right at us and didn't even speak. So we just sat down assuming she would be ending her conversation to assist us after about waiting for 10 min with no acknowledgment we got up in left. So unprofessional!
the school is not organized the front office people are rude and care nothing about the students they leave there clasrooms to other teachers leaving them with more kids than they can handle they gossip alot even though they call themselves women of god
There is not a focus on parent involvement. Teachers appear to be good in the classroom however I find it challenging to meet them and get a status on my child whenever i want a status.
I totally agree with both of you... Need to change the staff in the office. Attitudes were not pleasing at all. Pay all the money for books and just a waste because the kids rarely used them. You're not getting the services you're paying for at this school.
I totally agree with you I would not put my child there. The staff need to take customer service classes and even educational class. This I know cause my child was there. Good luck.
