The teachers at Kiddie Country are very good and a required to have four year degrees. There are also a lot of assistants and helpers to aid the teacher. However, the afternoon staff is inconsistent in their care giving. Some are very attentive and others seem less engaged. Also, the communication between the afternoon staff and morning staff is bad. They don't seem to know much about what happened earlier in the day. The school could improve the communication between the two groups. Also, school should post their menu online and newsletters as well. Overall, we have been happy with the school.
I very much wanted to share that I was a little nervous when my two year old started preschool at Kiddie Country in September, but I have had nothing but a positive experience. My daughter even asks to go on the weekends and when we ride by the school, she says, "That's my school." The school's Open House in September was wonderful and we're looking forward to the Holiday Open House next week. A really good school with a great staff.
I am a parent with a child at Kiddie Country and I cannot say enough about the school, staff, and program. Even the Governor of VA selected the school for the signing of an important Bill this year. All I can say is that I am more than pleased with the school and I'm glad for the high recommendations from other Kiddie Country parents that lead me to investigate the school for my child. Our family couldn't be happier.
My son was there as a 3 year old and was miserable. I trusted the teachers that it could take over a month for him to adjust so he was miserable for almost 5 weeks. I never saw any of the children smile & it felt like a little army (they seemed to always be lined up against a wall when I came in). I saw a child being scolded for crying & when I wanted my son to hold a certain toy (because I knew it would make him feel better) I was told he could not because that was not the assigned group of toys to be played with that day. It wasn't until my husband saw a video where my son was sitting in a corner the entire time without the teachers engaging him that we realized the problem was not with our son but rather the teachers/school. He was smiling & giggling when I picked him up from the school with switched him too, starting the first day. Do not send your child to this school unless you want a miserable child.
In accidently discovering this site, I decided to check out my child s school and was astonished at the remarks from a parent on December the 8th. We have had nothing but a top quality experience at Kiddie Country. All the staff have been wonderful to not only my child but to us as well. The teachers are all degreed and the ratios are fantastic. It is well run, clean, and in fact exceptional in everyway. I just don t get what this parent is saying. I wonder if they accidently posted about another school rather than Kiddie Country?
THE BEST PRESCHOOL. I can't say enough good things about Kiddie Country. It is an amazing school with an amazing program. My kids LOVE IT and can't wait to go each morning. We are so thankful to Kiddie Country for their obvious dedication to children and the community.
Nasty School! Absolutely the worst!! Kids are watched over by teenagers who are more interested in talking to each other then what is going on with kids. The worst is the administrator. My child got badly hurt at this school and no one at the school knows what happened!
Our experience at Kiddie Country has been exceptional. We have had several children who have gone through the school and we couldn t be more pleased. We just attended the annual Spring Program and it was fantastic. We are still amazed every time we see the preschoolers get up and perform on stage. It was a fun event and the music director included the entire audience. Nice school, degreed teachers, and very organized.
We have a special needs child who attends Kiddie Country and the administration, staff, and school nurse have been wonderful in helping us obtain additional services which has been paramount in her success. She now attends part-time and the rest of the day, she attends a class-based program. We will be forever grateful
