Once our little Mary was ready for preschool we searched everywhere for an environment that would meet our high demands. We visited many different centers but always found a compromise: too small, dirty, student/teacher ratio, hours, curriculum, etc. It seemed there was always “a catch” to each place. However, we were thrilled when we happened upon Kiddie County in Burke.
We knew immediately walking into the school that it was a safe, clean, and happy place for children. We saw toddlers being creative, attentively learning, and joyously playing in an open engaging environment. Since enrolling Mary in the preschool program, she has thrived socially and educationally. Her cognitive learning, music appreciation, creative expression, communication skills, social awareness, and conceptual understanding continue to surprise us regularly.
Other things we (and our kids) love about Kiddie country are the enormous shaded playground, the fantastic early music program, the education credentials of the staff, the design of the physical building itself (very open and unique), the generous student/teacher ratio, and, of course, the pool in the summertime!
One of the best testaments to Kiddie Country is the fact that our children never complain when we drop them off. They always run happily into the room to see what activity awaits them…and even sometimes drag their feet when we pick them up! Mary is already in her third year along with Truman, who is a year younger. We also look forward to bringing our baby into the mix next summer and wouldn’t dream of taking him anywhere else! If you believe that your toddler’s care and preschool should be without compromise, thenKiddie Country is for you.
