Northgate Whizz Kids is a terrible daycare center! DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILDREN HERE.

Great Childcare 1/3/2012

My daughter had her first daycare experience at Northgate Whizz Kids with the infant teacher, Toya, and my wife and I are thankful that we found her. She is attentive, loving, playful, and very good at communicating with parents. It took our daughter about a week to get accustomed to daycare, during which period Toya made her feel safe. She has moved out of the infant room and into the waddler room where she also loves her two teachers. The review posted by seriously123 (10/31/2011) strikes me as a mis-representation of what is going on at Northgate Whizz Kids and in Toya's infant classroom. Toya has always been professional and consistent with our daughter and us. Reflecting on my own experience, it seems hard to judge a daycare after only a few incomplete days. Whizz Kids is a very nurturing place. Our daughter has always been happy there and has received a lot of love, encouragement, and engagement though the activities they do. I've never seen anything but smiling parents when I pick up my daughter. We are really happy that we found Northgate Whizz Kids and recommend it to anyone who asks us. more

Caring Childcare 12/30/2011

My daughter has been attending Northgate Whizz Kids Academy since she was 3 months old. She loves all her teachers and insists on saying goodbye to all of them when we leave. I have been impressed with the care and teacher interaction with ALL employees. I would HIGHLY recommend Northgate Whizz Kids Academy to anyone! more

Best childcare in seattle 12/30/2011

Northgate Whizz Kids Academy is by far the best child care center I have ever been lucky enough to find. I have never seen a daycare that has such a healthy, happy and safe atmosphere for children of any age. Toya was absolutely wonderful with my daughter. A great deal of my daughter's advanced mental development is due to toya's nurturing care and dutiful attention including playing games, learning manners, motor skill exercises and exposure to wide assortment of activities that my daughter fully enjoyed. I had my baby in toya's care everyday weekday from june til november and never one had a problem. Toya never neglected my daughter and was constantly tending to any need she expressed. I couldn't be happier with my daughter's care in the infant room. Molly's availability to discuss any concerns that might arise also presently surprised me. As much as toya was there to care for my little girl, Molly was there was support me in my decision to put my child in daycare. Molly is more than understanding and was willing to work with me to ease me through my nervousness. Now my little one has moved from infant room to the waddler room and I still couldn't be happier. All of the teachers are absolutely wonderful with all of the kids. Teachers from other classrooms visit and get to know the smaller children and each one individually helps with the transition to the next class. Toyaeven stops by to visit my daughter in her class to watch her progress and because honestly toya misses her sometimes. The Staff of Northgate Whizz Kids Academy are priceless child care givers in that they don't this for a paycheck. These are people who genuinely care for our children in every way from comforting them when they miss mommy and daddy, soothing them when they fall, plenty of exercise inside and outside, balanced snacks and meals, a good nap, story time, coloring, and the ever wonderful routine handwashing. I have never been so pleased with any childcare facility and I know I can trust them with the care of my precious possession, my child. more

Nightmare childcare! 10/30/2011

Wonderful Daycare 10/7/2010

We ended up at Northgate Whizz Kids almost by chance, but we love it so far and so does our daughter! Since day one, they have been on top of every minor accident and illness. We receive a written notification of even the slightest bump or scratch. The teachers are so friendly and willing to chat about how our daughter is doing socially and developmentally on a daily basis. And the prepared meals are a huge bonus, saving us time and giving us peace of mind that our daughter is eating nutritious meals and snacks. more

Great neighborhood child care center 7/8/2010

Our son has attended Northgate Whizz Kids for almost 3 years. We highly recommend the staff and the facility. The school has provided a fertile environment for our son to grow physically, emotionally and mentally in a nurturing environment, and we are given plenty of one-on-one balanced feedback on a day to day basis on all aspects of his development. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities and also weigh in on how activities are planned. Children are taught to communicate effectively, for example, to express anger or anxiety in appropriate ways. Teachers work with parents when issues arise, to coordinate how things are handled at home as well as at the center. We appreciate these efforts to create create consistency in teaching children at this critical age. As we prepare for kindergarten, we hope that our continuing school experiences are as positive as our time with Whizz Kids. Pros: Effective, approachable staff, consistency, fun environment! Cons: Tuition pricey, but in keeping w/other Seattle FT child care more

Worse Child Care Experience Ever... 7/2/2010

I had to pull my son from this daycare due to a teacher verbally abusing my son, their lack of care, little to no supervision of children, no communication when VERY serious things happen, things that by law they are required to notify the parent of and the director miscalculating tuition trying to get more and more money out of the parents here. Due to all of these things there will be an investigation into this daycare and I have had to get an attorney for this matter. Definately would look for ANYWHERE else. I would never recommend a childcare facility that endangers children. Cons: Unprofessional director and staff, verbally abusing children more

Wonderful 1/25/2006

My daughter loves going to ""school"" at Whizz Kids. The teaching are friendly, engaging and wonderful with her. There has been some turnover in her room but it seems that the person they found to replace the last wonderful teacher is just as great. They all seem really dedicated to making sure the kids are safe, happy and educated during their day. Pros: Staff, No television, Art projects more
