Kids Castle Child Care Center I'll never forget working at this school :) As a matter a fact I'm in the process of Opening a Day Care and My Principles and values will be from this school. Mrs.Bingham is the Best Director I have ever worked for, she is truly someone I admire and look up to. She is like a mother to us, mentor and truly cares for the children. Since working there I have worked at many other locations and there's noneee like her . Mrs.Bingham really honestly care for your child's EDUCATION & FUTURE!!! I remember her walking around the school making sure teachers were TEACHING!!!! God Bless HER SOUL & HEART !!!! MS. LOPEZ

I attended this child care when i was 3. I quite enjoyed it my first year there. Then, when I started the year after at age 4, I had a teacher who was always kind around parents, but once they were gone, she was absolutely rude to my classmates and I. I remember she would hit us with a wooden stick for the most absurd reasons. For example, she would hit us for not actually sleeping during nap time. I was so glad I left this child care center once I told my mom about my teacher hitting us. I will never forget the horrifying and traumatic experience here at this school. I am turning 20 years old this year, and to this day I remember it so clearly. I use to believe that they stopped hitting children, but to the looks at the comment below mine, they haven't stopped. DO NOT put your child in this sort of environment. Believe me, there is not much of a positive aspect here. Other than being able to have the neatest penmenship at age 4, but with the act of getting beaten to write neater.

A four year old student was hit by a teacher today. The irector told the parents that an invstigation will be performed. The child was taken out of the school today. I hope the parents follow through and press charges. The directors needs to be replaced along with the teachers that hit the children. Some teachers at this school are mentally, and physically, and emotionally abusive to the children.

This is not a very good place you place your child to learn development skills. My child attended Kids castle in '06 and i had so many issues with the staff and directors. Even to this day i have had plenty of neighbors who had their kids attend this facility and from '06 to just last week and am still hearing bad reports on this school. They will make a parent believe that its their child with the issue but really its the school with the issue. I do not believe more that 1 kid will have the same issues year after year without the same kid attended and new kids or going to this school. I do not believe children are safe in this environment mentally or socially for public school preparedness going to K or grade 1

Well I've been working at Kids' Castle Child Care Center for years now, and throughout my time at the school. I notice that some of the teachers can become to aggressive towards the children such as hitting them and using profanity. Although some of the teachers are like that there are some teachers that are outstanding, and should be recognized for their efforts.

This school needs to be balanced. I think children are stucked in a classroom setting for to many hours a day. They should be given at least 25 to 45 minutes of outdoor play time through out the day.

My daughter attended this school from early '09 through about June '09. I, like a lot of parents who have written a review, agree that their academic program is rigorous. Your child will definetely learn at this center. However, social development, was lacking. In addition, the staff role model horrendous communication skills, were rarely ever polite to adults or children. I was so sick of the constant yelling of children and poor grammar. My only regret was not taking my daughter out of that school sooner.

I thought this school was a good choice for my son until an incident occurred that endangered his welfare and access to medically necessary treatment. First, my son was moved to a new teacher without informing my husband or I and when I went to pick him up, no one could seem to locate him. He found me. It was told to us that my child would be fine in attending and that appropriate measures would be followed if he were to have an asthma attack. Not true. Not true at all. In fact, I was told that him having asthma was no big deal and that it's just a cough.

This is a great school for children at an early age to develop skills that most children don't learn until elementary school. They are not only educated in math, english,science, and even history but they are also taught manners and how to respect people. This a great school I have been involved with this school since it opened and I am proud to say that I am involved with Kid's Castle Child Care Center.

The quality of academic programs if great! Your student will definitely be above many. The students learn a year ahead. I am amazed at the comprehensiveness of the curriculum. Students are taught to be confident and true leaders. Students can enroll in gymnastics, dance or karate. The summer program is decent, field trips are as exciting as they used to be. But still a great value. Parents are very involved. You will want to be also.

My son attended Kid's Castle from the fall of 2003 to the fall of 2004. My experience was not a pleasant one. Though the academic program is quite rigorous and one that may possibly yield an early reader, the school is lacking in its ability to foster social development. At one point, the director instituted a 15 minute only free play for the 4 year old students. In a day where many children spend 10-12 hours in a directed environment, 15 minutes of free play is not nearly enough. There are many field trips that require additional fees. Parents are not encouraged to interact with teachers outside of scheduled appointment times.
