What Parents Say About Kids Way ...

We love Kids Way and are very sorry to be leaving. I love how I can tell something to the morning staff and trust that they'll tell the afternoon staff. In addition, I love that it's a smaller school with only 2 classses as opposed to a giant center with NB thru 6 year olds. The teachers are the  best resource. They care so much about each child and his/her development. I thank the teachers of Kids Way for Ellie's expansive vocabulary.

My husband and I love our children attending Kids Way!  He's a teacher, and I'm a former teacher: education and early childhood learning are important to us. I'm also the type that researches the heck out of everything.  

Kids Way does everything right. They have a structured routine that makes kids comfortable but incorporates unstructured play time for child-led exploration. There's also lots of outside time, physical movement, art, music, reading, math, and science. The teachers and even the director, Kymm, invest in continued education--learning never stops!

When kids have a bad day or otherwise misbehave, correction and discipline are viewed as learning opportunities, not punishment. The staff works with the child and the parents to ensure we are all consistent and on the same page.

Another great thing about Kids Way are the web cameras (password protected, of course). Being able to sign in on my phone or on the computer and see what my kids are doing is a great comfort.


What I love about Kids Way:

When I moved to the area, the most important choice I needed to make was what day care to take my daughter to.  I have incredibly high standards and was quickly losing hope after visiting several local schools…until we found Kids Way.  I love the classroom environment provided for the children with lots of books and toys, as well as a safe and secure place for them to play outside.  A huge bonus was the web cam, so I could check in on her anytime I liked.  The security code required to enter the doors added to my confidence in the safety of the school.  I really liked that I could prepare my daughter’s lunch, instead of having to stick with a pre-planned menu.  The teachers really, truly care about the children in their charge, and that is irreplaceable.  The tuition is also very reasonable, especially when compared with other local schools and the peace of mind I’d be getting.  The curriculum is very solid and well planned to align with, and prepare the children for, kindergarten.  Overall, I am a very, very picky parent and I cannot imagine having taken my daughter to any other day care than Kids Way.  I am so happy we found it!

Ideas to improve Kids Way:
Although I understand the reasons for it, it would have been nice to have the option of packing my own snacks for Shelby.
