Editorial review from Citysearch 11/6/2012

I am very happy that we found KidsRKids in Avery Ranch. The teachers are AWESOME! It was hard to let my little one start school and he cried the first week or so badly but, now I am glad we made the move. He is happy everyday and he talkes about his friends. I could not be happier. I just hate we waited so long to make the move. To the people who still thinking. Cameras are good and the glass walls are a big PLUS!. At least you can see in the room where your child is the majority of the day and you don't need an appointment to come and visit YOUR child when you want to make a surprise visit to see how they are doing. My tip to KidsRKids keep doing a great job. more

We Are Happy With KidsRKids 4/23/2012

My husband and I are happy with KidsRKids after visiting several schools in the area we felt that this school made us feel welcomed. The entire staff is so nice, you feel it at the front door. My kids are happy and that makes me feel good. I like seeing them on the cameras in their classrooms and when I am out of town it?s the best. We moved here with no family in Austin and it was hard trying to find the right childcare, I am very satisfied with everything the center has to offer and I look forward to being here a long time. Keep up the good work! more

Cross The Track - Make The Change!!!! 1/25/2012

I am glad I made my change to Kids'R'Kids Avery Ranch. The facility is nice and clean, the front office staff; are so friendly and the teachers are just sweet. I hate I listened to someone and tried the other school down the street. My child did not receive what I thought was going to be great care like they said. Personally, I have met the owner and she is nice. For the two friends I left down there, just leave, do it for your kids! Don?t worry about what others will think, and for the record the school on Parmer where she went is not good because now she is leaving there in too. more

I DID NOT MAKE THAT POST! 1/13/2012

I just learned of the post that so many think I wrote. I did not write that garbage. I never saw a teacher spank a child. I never told Mrs.Elwin that a teacher spanked anyone. The children are wonderful and precious. The teachers are pretty awesome. If I had ever told Mrs.Elwin that a teacher did something to hurt a child she would have been on the cameras checking things out, talking to teachers,etc. She would never have let it go. This is silly that someone could post junk (right after I left) and everyone had such a horrible opinion of me that you thought it was me. I left for my own reasons not because I didn't meet standards. If someone said that, they are lying. If anyone wants to know why I left please ask. If I had an issue with KRK or Mrs.Elwin I would not post it on a silly website ! more

Best 10/25/2011

My son attended a Kids R Kids in Atlanta and we were very pleased we didn't dream that we could find a similar school as good as the one we were leaving. We didn't we found one that was much BETTER! The Avery Ranch Kids R Kids has surpassed our expectations the teachers are very interested in all of the children and our 4 year old son is learning new skills each week. Our son looks forward to the music, sport and tumbling classes each week. more

Amazed. 10/17/2011

Being a former parents and employee of the Kids r Kids in Cedar Park I was amazed to see such a dishonest review from another former employee. I worked at Kids r Kids for over three years, in that time I enrolled three of my children into the program ranging from the infant room to the afterschool age. My children were never unhappy or seemed to be abused by any of there teacher. Each one loved coming every day because their teacher fostered a wonderful learning environment and love. On the other side of the coin as a teacher there myself and know one that I worked with over the three and a half years I spent there ever laid a hand on a child. At one time while I was employed there I had been accused of abuse towards a child within the center, thanks to the school camera systems which are in place for the children's protection. It was shown that the child's injury occurred while playing on the playground and nothing more. I know many of the teachers who are still at Kids R Kids Avery Ranch and none of those teachers would ever treat a child in any other fashion than showing them the love and respect each child deserves. more

Quality Child Care 10/15/2011

To start...I am a parent at this center; not an obviously disgruntled ex-employee. I am also familiar with licensing standards for the state of Texas (since I did research before placing my child in someone else's care), as well as reporting requirements for anyone who works with children. I am disappointed to read that an employee, austinmom73, claims to ""know"" of egregious behavior by ""everyone"" at this center and did not do anything about it. Anyone who works with children or the elderly are mandated to report such acts, and therefore austinmom73, you are part of the ""everyone"". This leads me to believe that these statements are flagrant. Licensing performs random, unannounced visits to all licensed centers, and has found nothing of the sort with any teachers at this center. Kids R Kids at Avery Ranch is a wonderful center! The teachers are remarkable and do what I cannot do everyday...spend their day with my child. They are loving, respectful, honest and above all, have the children's best interest at heart. Kids R Kids introduces my child to new and exciting ideas and activities that help my child to prepare for Kindergarten. I have seen my child gain success when playing with other children, begin to follow directions (she's a toddler!), and bring home creative art projects. I'm a realistic parent who knows that it's the small things that matter. I care about my child's teachers and the way they are treated. I hope that my child's teachers do not read the poor comments made by someone who does not support them. As for the owners, I have nothing but respect and admiration for what they provide for my family. They promote an educational and loving environment for my child. And if I have any problem, I can guarantee you that I will address it with them...not post a hateful message. more

Parents Please Be Careful 10/9/2011

Hi Parents: I just quit this facility. One of the reasons is because many of the teachers are spanking kids (w/o parent's permission) behind the cameras. They know the blind spots of the cameras and go there to ""discipline"" the children. I only worked at KidsRKids Avery Ranch for a few months. It was only a few months because I could not stand to see and hear teachers do this to children. I told the owner what was going on and she did not care. The teachers often brag about what they do to children and I feel all parents should know what goes on here. I did not go to school and apply for this position to tolerate child abuse. Please also be aware of the owner's tendency to discredit her former employees. She will employ someone for years and once they leave for something better or get tired of her foolishness, she makes it as if that person was a monster. Please review all licensing history, accredidation, and possible child care abuse of the owner. She even calls in reports on her own employees. She asked me to make a report on an employee she wanted to fire, but I refused to do so. more

Really?? 9/13/2011

Beware of the owner writing her own ""positive"" reviews. This childcare is under horrible ownership. It should not be able to use the name Kids R Kids. They are all about money. I see why now the turnover rate is so high. I believe why it gets the reviews it has. I will never recommend this childcare to anyone and am pretty upset with the results of my child's learning. I would also give a no star if i could. more

What A Great School 9/1/2011

I can not say enough about Kids'R'Kids Avery Ranch. I love the entire school. My children have grown so much in this program and the staff is great. If you want your child to LEARN then put them in this program. They also have field trips that I am able to attend with my oldest child in Pre-K that made me feel like I was apart of his learning. It is hard when you are working and traveling away from your children. I log onto the cameras at Kids'R'Kids and I watch my kiddos play with their friends. I am happy to have this school as a part of my second family. more

My child LOVES this program 6/20/2011

I brought a groupon for my child this summer at the Avery Ranch location and my child loved it! We signed up for the remainder of the summer. I wasn't sure at first, but I thought a week free will not be so bad. She came home talking about how much fun she had, the new friends she made, and how the teachers are really nice. The school is beautiful and I am so happy that they do math and reading during the summer. I hate I did not buy an additional coupon for a friend, next time I will pass the word on. I recommend you try this school for yourself and let your child be the judge. This is the best coupon deal in a long time. more

Disappointing treatment by the director 11/15/2010

I had my daughter attend kids r kids for about 5 yrs in houston, tx with exceptional service. Naturally when I needed to put her on an after school program I selected kids r kids here in austin. To my surprise after 3 months of bringing her here it went down hill. more

Kids R Kids Cedar Park 6/8/2010

My kids have been going to Kids R Kids on Lakeline in Cedar Park and they love it. The teachers are so loving and caring my girls sometimes don't even want to leave at the end of the day. They have learned so much: colors, shapes, respect, patience and many other important tools that I know will help them when they go to kindergarten. I haven't seen one lazy person at this location and the interaction they give my child is nothing but positive. I guess there are just people in this world that are unhappy with everything? Not this parent! Pros: Loving and Caring more

I would give it a Zero if I could 5/25/2010

Honestly i was thinking it was a good idea to send my child there because I was able to see them on the camera. Wrong, The teachers are lazy and did not play with my infant. They did not answer my questions when I was asking why she was not engaging with the infants. The direct , MS SUSAN is HORRIBLE. She is fake, Honestly i would have given the school at least 3 stars if it was not for her. She smiles to get the business then when she has your money she does not care. She would not answer my questions nor take my calls. This is the Kids r Kids on N. Lake Line. I have not tried another one , nor will I . I suggest saving your money and finding a great daycare. Pros: The video Camera Cons: The staff , Ms. susan more

Excellence in education 12/30/2009

While I cannot give a scientific measurement of the success of my daughter's instruction at Kids R Kids, I can say with certainty that my daughter is stimulated and learns in a warm and responsive environment created by the Director's innovative approach to early childhood education. The Director (Elwin West) has a way of pulling together and making Kids R Kids a place for children to get a true start in their education. The Director shows unparalleled commitment to parents, families and the community. As a parent, I can attest to her professionalism and her concern for the well-being of the child development center and the kids who frequent it. Pros: Educational environment; Director more

Teachers Rock! 12/24/2009

On my daughter's fourth birthday, I asked her to choose a popular character for on top of her birthday cake. Very seriously, she said, ""I would like Miss Susan on my cake."" We often wonder what we'd do without her. Miss Susan (a Pre-K teacher at Kids R Kids) is our greatest ally in the education of our kids about respect for others and the environment, sensorial learning, science, math, as well as the importance of early literacy skills. Pros: Miss Susan, Teacher in Pre-kindergarten Cons: Wish Miss Susan could stay with us 24/7 more

Disappointed 11/9/2009

So very disappointed in this school. When we started there all seemed well, then slowly started to deteriorate. This school DOES NOT work with your child if they deviate from the scheduled daily routine in any way. After meeting with the teachers and director it became very clear that it was a situation that was not going to improve and shamefully quick to blame parents and children for any problems. I thought that Child care meant CARING for ALL children not just the ones who do as they are told. Its one thing to guide a spirited child but its another to try and break their spirit. My suggestion to all parents looking at this day care....pay by the week (for a speedy exit if need be) and be sure to watch the streaming video! Pros: Cathy,Trey, CeCe,Elizabeth Cons: Owner/director more

Great facility and staff! 8/18/2009

I visited Kids R Kids Avery Ranch and was very impressed with the entire experience. Te owners both personally took time to speak with me and to give me a tour of the facility. I really liked the way different ages were groups and separated, from the classrooms to the outdoor play areas. Each area was also equipped to be safe and appropriate for the age group. The staff was all very friendly and the technology in place to prepare the kids for different school districts was awesome. I also liked the cameras and ability to check in on the kids during the day. Overall, I was excited to find a childcare and learning center so focused on the kids and providing a high level of service. I would recommend Kids R Kids Avery Ranch to any parents in the area looking for peace of mind and a great place to prepare their kids for school. Pros: High level of care and quality programs more

Worst day care in austin 6/24/2009

This is the worst day care hands down! I had my kid at this school andpulled her, the director lies,and does not care about anyone but herself!and hopes this daycare gets its permit's pulled more

Unsatisfied customers are the loudest! 3/5/2009

I have been a parent at KidsRKids for about 7 months now. I am also a teacher at another school and have very high expectations for child care and parent/teacher communication. I have had 7 months of wonderful experiences with the administration, the parent-teacher communication, the affection expressed towards my child and the happiness that my child brings home from school. I think many people are quick to judge others instead of communicating their concerns and working with others to reach a desired goal. It is much easier to place blame on someone instead of looking at all of the factors and figuring out the real issues are. I have found the teachers very approachable and the lines of communication are wide open. I look forward to sending my other child there next year too. I wish that more of the satisfied parents would write reviews. Pros: Art Projects, Teacher Enthusiasm & Affection, Making Learning Fun! more
