Picked up my child without notice and he was completely soiled in a not-so-fresh pee. The child to adult ratio is completely off. Zeida Garcia and her husband do nothing but lie every time they open their mouths. Completely removed us from the system without notice when we brought up financial difficulty, even though we already paid. Then, they refused us a refund, citing corporate policy (yet another lie because corporate told me it was at the discretion of each franchise). Teachers at the facility have even told us they get mistreated all the time. Seriously reconsider this place. We had our first child here for over a year seemingly with no issues, but it has completely turned a wrong corner this time. I have filed a complaint with DCF. That's how serious this is. If you choose them despite this review, I strongly recommend you make as many surprise visits as possible. Things may appear okay on the surface, but there are some serious issues with this place...

Let me first start off saying if I had the option of not choosing starts in this review I would. I was actually hired as a teacher for this school and it was the worst experience ever. They do not provide breaks for staff and even against DCF policy it is only one staff in each classroom regardless of the number of students in the class room with the exception of the infant room, they have two staff in that room. The students do not learn anything, they only do arts and crafts activities and table toys. This is not an educational school it is a center to drop your kids off to play while you are at work. If you try to teach the kids anything they get mad and tell you to just find an activity to keep them busy. I will never enroll my kids in this facility, my one year old daughter is able to sing abc's and count to 10 and the students in "vpk" can't even do that. This school is all about the money. They don't want you to tell the parents if their child is sick and needs to stay home. The management doesn't do anything at all and I left for this very reason, I believe education is important not playing all day. Parents please look into other schools this is a bad choice.

I started my son at Kiddie Academy when he was 16 months. That was August of 2012. I pulled him out in February. I was very unhappy with the staff. His first teacher Ms. Samantha was sweet and good with the kiddos, but when he moved into the 18 month class, I started having my doubts. There were times I had no idea who his teacher was for the day and when I would pick him up in the afternoon, he was always in a different room, with different kids, and a different teacher. The teachers yelled more than they redirected. It upset me because they are working with babies, many who can't communicate and they were always yelling at them. He was also CONSTANTLY sick!!! I mean sick sick, not just "daycare" sick- fever every other week, strep throat, a constant cough. He also always came hime so dirty and yucky It was rough for me and him. My suggestion would be to tour other schools. Not worth the money or the head ache.

My son has been attending Kiddie Academy since the summer of 2013. My wife and I are happy to say that we absolutely love our experience thus far. From the moment you enter the school you get the feeling you're at home. While the staff and Director still maintain a very professional atmosphere they are friendly, loving and attentive to our son's needs. His teacher always seems to be interested in him and what he does on the weekends and in our family as well. Our son loves to come to school here and is learning a lot as he makes new friends in his classroom. We would gladly recommend Kiddie Academy of Boca to any of our friends and family members with kids.

At first I loved the daycare. My son began here at 5 months old. He was exclusively breastfed and refused bottles. I would go over to nurse him every 2 hours. My first issue with the management was being told not to nurse in their facility. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! I brushed it off and obeyed by nursing my son in my hot car for the following few months. In their infant room they allow the parents to bring food from home. This was great because my son eats a strict natural food and organic diet. When he turned one they threatened to take away my right to bring my son's food from home with their reason being "We don't supervise the children closely enough to ensure another child won't eat what you bring" -Zeida (owner). Willing to admit you bluntly aren't watching small children while they are eating food...This made me incredibly uncomfortable as it would any parent. After reviewing the nutritional values listed on the food they feed the kids I decided to ask my pediatrician what to do. CORN SYRUP was the first ingredient listed in their apple sauce (which is routinely fed to infants as young as 4 months, disgusting) The doctor agreed with my position and wrote a letter to the daycare without question. They finally agreed to allow me to bring his food from home. Upon his first day in the toddler room I dropped him off around 8:30am with a sippy cup of water, 2 snacks and lunch. I get a call at around 2pm from Michelle in management that my son was fussy and I didn't bring food for him that day. OUTRAGED I rushed over to the daycare to find his lunch exactly where it was supposed to be, on his name assigned shelf. So you mean to tell me you didn't feed or hydrate my one year old child from 8:30am until 2:00pm, THAT IS 5.5 hours, in normal routine that is 1 snack and lunch that the other kids would have eaten within that time. The absolute last straw with this HORRIBLE management... On December 12th I notified the Zeida (owner) and Michelle (her assistant) that my son would be attending late on Friday and the following Monday. I attempted to drop him off on Monday at 11:30am only to be told that they didn't have enough teachers for me to drop him off and that I had to have him there by 8:00am. In turn I missed work. Firstly why wasn't in mentioned when I was telling them he would be late and secondly WHAT DID I PAY $260 A WEEK FOR? At this point I gave them my 2-week written notice that I would be looking for another daycare. I attempted to drop him off the following day since by contract I must pay for the following 2 weeks. Only to find that they locked me out of their keypad system. I wasn't able to drop my son off and there was NO management at the facility to correct the issue. The teachers who were on duty recommended I not leave him there causing me to miss work yet again. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE management. These are only half of the incidents I've had with them. DO NOT trust them with your pride and joy. The management simply just doesn't care about your children's health or wellbeing.

My son has been attending Kiddie Academy of Boca Raton since they first opened in 2012. We love the school! From the minute you walk in the place you see an organized setting that is by far the cleanest preschool we have seen among all those that we visited during our search. The teachers are friendly and nurturing toward the children and the Director is always there with a smile on her face for the kids. We love the positive environment and families seem to also take interest in getting to know one another. It's the best place for our son. We highly recommend it.
