Great Early Childhood Center 8/18/2011

My husband and I have had a great experience at this La Petite Academy. We originally chose this center because it is close to my work, the environment was clean, and the management and staff were all very friendly. We have 2 children and 1 on the way. Since we started a year ago there has been very little turn over and the teachers have always been consistenly in the same room. The teachers are great at communicating to us how our childs day has been. more

Daycare, La Petite Academy,1810 S Scarborough st, Olathe 8/9/2011

I took out my 20 months old son from this daycare because he had 3 accidents in a week. He got cut inside his mouth, nose bleeding, swollen and brused left cheek, and several bytes. The assistant director Samantha told us, quote, ""Kids fall all the time, its normal."" The place is dirty. Whenever I went to pick up my son, he had food, glue, or dirt on his hands. Kids always have Dirty nose. He frequently got sick, and had diarrhea. He frequently had wet clothes from play ground. Came home dehydrated and very hungry. I expected 2 things from the daycare: safety, and food for my child, but they failed me. The corporate is also not doing its job of looking after its daycares. more

Antioch and College - VERY POOR!! 12/16/2009

This is a review not for the Olathe Branch, but for the one on Antioch and College, in Overland Park. I don't even want to give them a star. I am sorry to say but I would not recommend this daycare to anyone. They have no structure and the staff changes every month. So does their rules. Problem # 1. THE RULES CHANGE EVERY WEEK One day you can sign a form (long term) for you child to have, say, Tylenol when needed - (oh yes Orajel too..which are not prescription drugs) and then the teachers don't get informed and they refuse to give your child needed medicine, because it is not on his daily sheet?? Come on - is it so hard to go to the front desk to check the child's records? Or to call the parent and let them know your child needs it? Problem #2. MISSCOMMUNICATION BETWEEN STAFF All though you leave all your contact information at the front desk with your child's files including Emergency contact numbers.. They will call your home and leave a message!!!! My child had a fever of 102 - they did not look for my cell number, they did not look for my husband's work number - they left a message at home. Working parents will not get this message if they are not home - dont they know this? Do they even really care about our children or are they just there to earn their weekly wages? Problem # 3. INDIFFERENT TO YOUR CHILD'S WELLFARE They will let the child walk around - hands and feet cold like icicles. I often pick up my child and he's toes are freezing - Shoes and socks are in his cubby. 2 sets of spare clothes and a jacket. Problem #4. NO STRUCTURE They dont have a ""transition room"" your child will go from Infant room to toddler room without a transitioning period. So he will be with the newborns up to 10 months for the first year of his life, then BAM into the toddler room where they are running around (like children do). But there is no structure - how will they learn to eat from a table/plate or drink from a sippy cup and then from a real cup? These little things all add up. At first he/she will not have any friends of his/her own age, then he gets put in with the older kids? HUH? I ask you how that works. The infants will get most of the attention anyway.. so your child who would soon become a young toddler will get the least attention. Because he/she can now play by him/herself. No. Im afraid this is no loving and safe environment. Problem # 4. SAFETY I also witnessed a little girl.. just learning to sit.. fall backwards onto the hard tiled floor, from sitting on the edge of the playmat.. the teachers were pre-occupied with their own things and did not even notice this - I saw it happen in slow motion and with a loud THUD on the floor, if i did not have my child in my hands I would have saved her from falling. The teachers are RIGHT THERE!! Are 3 kids per teacher too much to handle? Where are your attention - it should be with the children. Problem #5. HYGIENE They don't wear plastic gloves when feeding the kids - my kid has been sick more times than I can count. They don't wipe nosies to avoid contamination and complain to parents when kids are sick, asif it is our fault. Problem #6. STAFF CHANGES MONTHLY Almost every month they have new teachers starting (8months pregnant none the less - so yes they will have to leave anyway) and new Management comes along with new rules and new ideas - its a never ending battle with them. They don't communicate with their staff about rules and updates or changes so no one knows what is going on in that place. One person will tell you something, then the other person will tell you different. Well.. i can go on and on.. but these are the issues I am having.. and hopefully for not much longer. God bless and good luck! Pros: It is convenient Cons: No structure, Change of staff every month more

AMAZING Daycare!!! 9/28/2007

I felt at ease right away with this daycare and it all starts with the management. The director is amazing and the staff is top notch. My son has been there a year now and just loves everyone on staff. He has moved from the one year old room to the two year old room and grew close to both teachers right away. He comes in and every teacher knows his name and he knows theirs. This is a very safe and loving environment and I highly recommend this daycare to anyone in the area. I love it!!!! more
