Testimonial:
“Our daughter joined Kids Place at the age of 17 months, we were very excited for her to start going but also scared
because we didn’t know how she would react.
We did tour other centers before we decided to place her at Kid’s Place.
Our expectations were met as far as lesson plans, the hands on guidance with the day to day activities, the teachers’
interaction with the children, and how informative they are. I can honestly say that this is an exemplary learning facility.
Our daughter has learned so much while enrolled at Kid’s Place.
She has made improvements in her speech/language,
vocabulary, fine and gross motor skills, cognitive, social and emotional development and is so magnificent.
Her
mannerisms are superb.
Our daughter enjoys going to school and being with her teachers and friends. We are so happy
that we chose Kids Place because it’s like one big family here.”
