For the parent that wrote a bad review on my kids school , they are so wrong. My kids love it there. My kids told me that they only get to use their ds only 3 a day, if that. They are so busy with their other activites, outside , dance, art and many more stuff. I know their learning because they come home with tunes of paper work that they done. They are so proud of their work they have done on their letters. I just want to say thanks to all the caring stuff. Love it there.

I have 4 kids and have made sure all of them attended kids etc. They make it feel like it is home away from home. You can tell the staff truly cares about the kids and aren't just going thru the motions. They are always doing fun activities and bring in great entertainment. The curriculum is awesome. All of my kids left being able to read and it gave them a great head start for school. They felt loved and safe and had fun. mM youngest still goes there and loves every minute of it. I could go on and on. I highly recommend this school!

My kids did not like this school at all! Every time I walked in, the kids would be running amok, or stuck in front of a television or DS system, that some kid brought from home. The teachers would often be sitting around drinking coffee and chatting with each other. My kids begged me not to take them there. I have since switched them to another day care and they beg me not to pick them up early. There was not active and learning. About the only thing I expected from Kids Etc, is that my kids would be safe. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

My children have gone to Kids Etc. Preschool for over 6 years and they love it. In the beginning they both had a hard time being dropped off. I think this is normal for kids. The staff at Kids Etc. Preschool is very nurturing and consistent with the whole process and eventually my kids could be dropped off without any tears. For a while my kids would still cry when I dropped them off but they would also cry when I picked them up because they didn't want to leave! The kids have lots to do and are kept busy all day with fun educational activities in a safe nurturing environment. Thank you to the experienced and caring owners and staff of Kids Etc. Preschool for all your hard work and patience!

I put my 5 year old daughter in Kids Ect. She has really bad sepertion angziaty and they wern't loving and caring at all!! The teachers there wern't very nice. When I would go pick her up they said nothing to me. I pulled her out after only 4 days. It's dirty and dark there. The teachers would being standing around talking and not watching the kids.She hated going to school everyday. Needless to say I pulled her out after only 4 days.

My son went to Kids Etc from 2 years old thru Kindergarten. He loved all his teachers (he's in 9th grad now and still talks about Miss Jan), loved doing the school work and projects. We also loved the yearly Christmas program and Kindergarten graduation. Even though it's been sometime since my son attended the school he still looks back with fond memories. I could not have picked a better school to start him off on the right track. Kid's Etc is an incredible, awesome, education oriented, fun, safe place to take your kids

My kids have been going to Kids Etc. for years. They love going to school each day and come home with tons of stories about their day. They love their teachers and do fun activities. I would never trust my kids in the hands of another daycare/preschool. Thank you Kids Etc. for taking care of my kids and earning my trust throughout the years.
