D and K Day Care/Preschool Reviews
Poor service, poor care, horrible experience! I have been utilizing daycare for my child for over 4 years at another location, which was a great experience, unfortunately due to starting school we needed to change locations, and we chose D&K daycare. During our time there (which was 5 days) my daughter watched movies daily, one day even consisting of two movies. During the week my child didn't do did any learning activities or educational games, no crafts, and basically the day was spent entertaining herself. The teachers had bad attitudes and we're very rude to myself and my child's father. They were disengaged with all the kids, and seemed miserable at work. I had hoped maybe it was just a bad day, each day that went by was no better than the prior. After one week, we made different arrangements for our child. I would never recommend this school to anyone.
This is a terrible daycare! I have worked with children for over ten years and have never experienced workers and a director that were as rude and unorganized. I was hired by them and in my first day quit and left within the hour, with my two year old son hyperventilating and crying. They are lazy and don't want to potty train children; My child is dry in the day and they said he had to put on pull ups, stating it is state law to use only pull-ups; this is not so and they should have proper body fluid cleaning kits for such accidents. When I asked to put one on him and explain to my child he would still need to tell them when he needed to go potty, they said I couldn't go in the room because it would undermine the teacher. (Remember, my son has known them less than ten minutes) .At nap time the worker was unfriendly and didn't even try to make my son feel comfortable. Children were sobbing and no-one seemed to care. When I worked in daycare before, we would put on soft music and sing a song to let the children help us set out mats, and if they were sad we would sit by them and rub their back and calm them. They say they teach Love and Logic but they certainly don't practice it.
Love this Daycare! My husband and I love this place! Don't believe the reviews. I have been taking my kids to D&K for years. My oldest is in high school and my baby is 2. It's a shame people have been so nasty about this place. Most of the staff have been there for years, and they love the kids. My daughter had a dance recital this past december, her teacher and the director both came to watch. My son also plays soccer and they both came to see him play. They plan fun activities each week for the kids and my kids love it there. The directors are taking the kids to IHOP this week for a fun surprise. I love the family atmosphere and the genuine attention they give to each of my kids. They are concerned about the kids and me as well. Whenever i have had a problem it was fixed immediately. Don't believe the reviews these ladies are genuine they take time out of there personal lives to attend my kids activites.
D and K daycare is an amazing place to have your child attend. The teachers are all very sweet and know every child personally. I have noticed that children who go to this school have more personality and d and K daycare allows them to show that. They are also always doing fun art and the whole school is constantly filled with them.
