My children have been going to Ruckus Kids for seven years. First for daycare and now before and after school care. There is no I trust more with my children. She has been a positive influence in my children's life. I can not thank Mrs. Kris enough.

Finding Mrs. Kris and Ruckus Kids has been the best choice I have made for my child. He was instantly comfortable the moment he walked in, and I knew then that this was the right place. We've been with Ruckus Kids for 2 years now (my son is 3), and will be there until he goes to kindergarten. One aspect that is different about this preschool versus others is the amount of outdoor time/play. Kids need to be outdoors. There is so much to learn and experience. Ruckus Kids has the best, and biggest, backyard I have seen. There is so much for them to do, from a big sandbox, to splash pad, garden, toys, playground, and a space to learn. And yes, they get dirty, and I love it (but don't worry, they get cleaned up!). Kids are meant to play in the grass, dirt, sand, you name it. Before I started bringing him to Ruckus Kids, my son kept getting sick from his other daycare. Not anymore. That went right away. That is HUGE!

But besides the amazing backyard and preschool room, Mrs. Kris has made such a huge impact on our lives. I have seen my kid grow by leaps and bounds. Each day I feel like I tell him "I didn't know you knew that!" Mrs. Kris has curriculum, activities, lessons, themes, you name it. I know my child will be more than prepared for Kindergarten. Having the multi-age group (infants to preschoolers) is such a great experience for the kids. I know my son's language development took off because of being around the older children. But full disclosure, my kid is a handful. He has huge emotions and learning what those emotions mean, and how to cope/work through them is his biggest challenge. Mrs. Kris gets him. I have learned techniques based on her advice, and it is helping my child learn and grow. She understands the social/emotional needs of the young child. She has been a blessing to us. She is truly meant to work with children, and it is absolutely her gift. And the teachers she employs are fantastic too. Each day I feel like I am dropping my kid off at my friend's house. That level of trust and comfort is priceless.

Kris runs her daycare very poorly leaving employees by themselves with not much training and when numbers are 10 kids to 1 teacher (which is against regulation). Once the audits come in she puts on a very great show, making everyone think she's this hands on every day when in reality she's either locked in her office doing her own homework or going to get non company errands done.
Reply from Ruckus Kids Private Early Education Program
This is a fraud post. This is ABSOLUTELY NOT Ms. Jesse. This was written by another teacher who wrote it under her name, when he feels like it he will remove it.
Yes, this is Slander. It was a HUGE violation of FERPA but BIG THANK YOU to Care.com. After two-weeks of trying to get it addressed they removed enough of the original post in removing the personal information of a child that was enrolled.
If you believe this post then we are not for you.

I tend not to trust anyone with my son and after meeting Kris and the rest of her staff, I chose Ruckus Kids to provide daycare for my son. He has been in their program for almost a year and they take care of him as if he was one of their own children. My son has certain food allergies and they take extra care to insure that he doesn't get any of the foods he is allergic to. I would absolutely recommend them without a doubt in my mind for anyone looking for daycare for their children.

I have had the pleasure of visiting Ruckus Kids on many occasions to visit my grandson. He has been going to Ruckus Kids for almost a year. The care that is provided is the best I have seen. Ruckus Kids has a program that is great for any age child. I know my grandson is well taken care of. The social skills and activities that are provided here has allowed my grandson to grow into the a very intelligent toddler. I would highly recommend Ruckus Kids to anyone who is looking for a great center.

Kristin Cederstrom is a loving and compassionate individual and her skills, knowledge and instincts are well-suited for the day care/early education field. Ruckus Kids is an excellent facility and the program is intelligently designed and excuted. I highly recommend Ruckus Kids for anyone in need of this kind of service. You can rest assured that your loved ones are being well cared for and involved in a structured learning and playing environment.

Ruckus Kids is a first rate care program staffed by well-trained and dedicated individuals. The facilities are wonderful and the care given superb. I have visited this facility on many occasions and can recommend Ruckus Kids without reservation.

My daughter (almost 4) has been attending Ruckus Kids since she was 4 months old. Mrs. Kris and her teachers offer a loving, save, educational environment for the children. Mrs. Kris goes above and beyond to keep learning fun. She offers preschool curriculum and I am amazed at the information my daughter "teaches" me at home--information she learned at Ruckus Kids! We are very excited for our second child to attend Ruckus Kids starting in November!

I have know the director for over five years and have watched this program flourish! The kids are managed with kind and loving attention no matter what age or situation. I have recommended Ruckus Kids to my own family members with young children as a terrific opportunity to have them well supervised, educated, and properly fed (especially those with allergies). My own children are too old to go now, but I wouldn't consider any other place if they were younger. Very professional staff, clean and well cared for facility... the next best place after your own home!

My daughter is 4, and has been going to Ruckus Kids since she was 1 1/2. I feel comfortable knowing that she is in a safe, structured, well run environment while she is away from me. She comes home brimming with her new knowledge she has learned that day, whether it is about the planet Mewkwey or a beaver. She retains so much. Her social skills are vastly more advanced than most children her age, and she loves the playtime and friends she sees. Ruckus kids is well run, yet flexible enough to deal with the curve balls every day life throws at us.

I visited Ruckus Kids in search of a program for my child and I was impressed at the lengths that the providers went for the children. Have a wide range of school activities as well as play activities for the kids. Was very impressed.

My 2 year old has been going to Ruckus Kids for for a year now. He loves it!!! We do too!!! The care that the providers give is the BEST. He has grown so much since he has been at Ruckus Kids, the social skills, academics and life skills they teach have helped my 2 year old. The teachers are very friendly and understanding with any needs my child has had since he has been there. I know that my child is well taken care of when I drop him off. I would definitely recommend Ruckus Kids!!!!

Both my children 4 and 1 have been going to Ruckus kids for a year now. I have seen my 4 year old grow so much in the last year. He comes home with new information everyday and loves the interaction with the other kids. He learns academics, social skills and life skills. My one year old has had reflux issues and the child care providers here have been so accommodating working with him and making him comfortable.
I love the communication I receive from the child care providers and the friendly atmosphere. It is reassuring to drop my kids off with people that are caring and compassionate.

My Child has been going to Ruckus kids for a year and a half and he loves it. He loves to go to school to learn and spend time with his friends.
I also am very happy with the child care provided there. My son comes home everyday learning something new. I am happy to see the way the teachers interact and take care of my child. Everyone is compassionate and caring when they need to be and structured to keep the day productive. I would definitely recommend this to any one with children.
