Click to report rating    7/6/12   5     5     5     5     5   Kiddie Academy always has a very welcoming and friendly environment. The staff is amazing! They are always interacting in a positive, caring, and nurturing way with our daughter and they are very enthusiastic. They always know what is going on with my daughter from her sleeping patterns, eating patterns, and overall development and well-being. There is always plenty of staff, so our daughter gets the attention and care she needs at all times. We are also thoroughly informed on all regulations for everything from operating hours to how they handle emergencies, etc. We love the structured schedules that include plenty of time for physical activity in the outdoor play area, quiet time, reading sessions, other group activities, meals, and snacks. Our child's development has progressed a lot socially and intellectually since attending Kiddie Academy in Irvine. She loves her daycare and loves telling us what she learned every day. RID: 17355

Click to report rating    7/20/11   5     5     5     5     5   Kiddie Academy is the best preschool in Orange County. My triplets started as infants. We reluctantly left for two years due to job and have recently went back. Upon arriving to pick my children up they are excited to tell me about their day and everything they did during the day. (They were not doing this at their previous school) They have the same teachers that were there when my children started almost four (4) years ago. The teachers are amazing, they care about the children and take a true interest in the children. The first day we came back the teachers they knew were excited to see them. As for the owner and office staff they are amazing. I am truly blessed to be able to bring my children to such a wonderful school. RID: 13807

Click to report rating    6/1/11   5     5     5     5     5   I have two children that attend Kiddie Academy in Irvine. They couldn't be in a better place! My infant is so loved and in great care with the caregivers. They do their best to accommodate requests to ensure that my child is happy and comfortable. Amber is wonderful! She knows my baby as much as I do. She sends me pictures and keeps me updated with progresses and milestones. When I drop my baby off in the mornings, you can see the huge grin when Amber picks him up. :) My toddler, on the first week of attending there, already started saying colors that they taught. I love seeing my child run to them and hug them when I drop them off in the mornings. It makes my day a lot easier! Although the great care that my kids get is the main reason why I love Kiddie Academy, they also have a secured well kept facility, the cost is affordable, meals included, and a web cam so I can check in on my kids from time-to-time. I recommend this facility 100%! RID: 13385

 11/23/10   5     5     5     5     5   My child has been attending this school for the last three years. I have no complaints. I am so comfortable leaving my son each day and he looks forward to coming. The teachers have been wonderful and the other administrative staff is great. Check it out for yourself! RID: 11786

Click to report rating    10/1/10   1     3     3     1     1   I was very impressed at first with student teacher ratio, online web cam, and young teachers but little did I know about the unprofessional and unfriendly front office staff, unstructured teachers and lack of quality care for the children. The teachers are over worked and they are refusing to either hire more teachers or stop accepting more students. I'm experiencing attitude from the front office staff and owner soon after I registered my son. I am now learning that this day care is very unstructural and inconsistent with what they preach! I also know that their teacher turnover rate is high, they are overworked, and underpaid! I am writing this review in hopes of educating concerned loving parents such as I, who now have to pull my son out and search for another caring quality daycare. I would not recommend this daycare facility to anyone!!! RID: 11442

Click to report rating    3/30/10   5     5     5     5     5   After researching preschools online I decided to go for a tour at this school. I was pleasantly surprised at the warm and bright environment. The teachers were so loving and the three year old teacher even let my daughter try an activity. This was by far the best place we toured. We signed up and are starting in April. I am proud to say I am a picky parent and I am so comfortable with our choice, plus we can see her at all times on the cameras! Definitely go tour! RID: 10263

Click to report rating    12/9/09   5     5     5     5     5   My toddler has been in the toddler room for 6 months and I can't imagine him being in any better situation. The teachers have been so warm and friendly to my son, he is excited to come to school everyday. I toured 5 other schools and this one was by far the cleanest and most welcoming. RID: 9672

Click to report rating    10/8/09   5     5     5     5     5   The teachers in the toddlers room are wonderful in this center . My son stopped crying in just few days after he started. They gave him the extra attention he needed during this hard transition period. The center is clean and staff is very friendly. We recommend this preschool to everyone seeking high quality care in irvine RID: 9290

     9/13/09   1     1     1     1     1   My son went to this daycare for only two days which was too long. When his grandma picked him up he was flushed and very thirsty. He was asking the teacher for juice and was not given any. This was in the middle of the summer, he was playing outside and was hot and sweaty. Luckly his grandma had a juice box in the car to give him. My son was clearly dehydrated, later getting very sick with diarria and vomitting. He did not attend the following day and we never recieved a phone call to ask why he was not at school. At our previous daycare parents were required to call in and account for their children otherwise the daycare would call to verify the child was not attending that day. I would never recommend this daycare. They try to grab your attention by pushing academics for your child but I did not see that the children were under control. My son was in the kindergarden class and I found the children to be a little restless and not in control of the young teachers. RID: 9127

 8/4/09   5     5     5     5     5   I have been a proud parent at Kiddie Academy for a few years now and I can say that the money I spend there on my kid is well worth it. I have witnessed his huge progress socially and academically from when he started. He moved up a couple of classrooms and currently attend the Kindergarden classroom at this center. I noticed both teachers in this classroom are very knowledgeable of the curriculum. But mostly, you can sense a sincere warmth and care in dealing with the kids. The center is kept clean and the front office staff is always friendly and professional. They managed to maintain low ratios in the classrooms by having extra staff helping out. My kid is so excited to bring home different activities everyday and I am glad I didn't place him in the public kindergarden with so many kids in the classrooms. RID: 8916

     10/22/08   1     2     2     1     2   It was easy and fast to enroll my child unlike most Irvine daycare facilities that have long wait lists. I soon found out why. The teachers were nice but they seemed to be no real structure. My child's teacher was also unaware of the allergy my child had after 2 weeks of attending. They did not seem equipped to handle medications. They never asked me about it after making them well aware of my child's condition. My real problem was with the management and/or director. There is no professionalism and the so called "director" looked like she fell right out of bed. Whenever I picked my child, she sat behind the front desk just staring with a flat affect. The owner was also questionable and appeared shady. When I was forced to withdraw my child, they didn't at all seem empathetic. This business is run poorly. They are quick to take your money but after that, they could care less. I would NOT recommend this facility to my worst enemy. Parents beware! RID: 7240

Click to report rating    10/17/08   2     4     2     2     1   In fairness to parents who may use this Website in deciding whether to place their kids here, I had to write as a parent who has used this center. Although the owner may care, it is the TEACHERS who have to also care and my experience has been that they did not and the owners were idle in allowing the apathy of teachers to continue. Before you enroll your child here, please ask about the qualifications of the TEACHERS (especially the one over your child) and also ask about their length of employment as turnover is a MAJOR problem here. The last thing a parent needs to worry about is whether their child is in quality care. RID: 7221

Click to report rating    9/6/08   4     4     4     4     3   Great facility for the kids. Lots of activities and caring staff. I have 3 kids that go to this school and they have all enjoyed it. Every school has their moments, but the owners and director are always there to talk and correct any situation that occurs. RID: 6841

Click to report rating    5/27/07   5     5     5     5     5   The reason I like this center is because management is always there to respond to the needs of the kids. They do heir best to retain and promote only good quality teachers. I feel like my concerns are always addressed because actions are followed immediately. The food is great at this center and my son and I are very happy. RID: 3356
