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.
