"Our daughter attended A Place for Kids for two years. She started in the infant room when she was 6 months old. A few months ago, my husband got a promotion and a transfer to San Francisco. One of the first thoughts that entered my head when I found out that we were moving was that we would have to leave A Place For Kids. I was heartbroken.
Our daughter loved A Place for Kids. She was always happy in the morning when I dropped her off and greeted me with smiles when I picked her up. She constantly talked (and still talks) about Diane, Cathy, and her little friends from APFK. She learned so much from APFK. I was always astounded by the new things she learned every day. They taught her simple sign language, how to say "please," "thank you," and "bless you" when someone sneezed. She learned how to count to ten and say "sorry" and pat someone comfortingly on the arm when she made a mistake. I know that she would not have learned all of this if it hadn't been for APFK."
"My boys were 18 months and 3 1/2 when we started at APFK. Let me start by saying I went to them originally because my sister had my niece in their care from the time she was an infant and LOVED them. From day one I knew my boys were in good hands. I come from an early childhood education background and am VERY picky when it comes to care for my boys. My boys were always warmly welcomed in the mornings, had so many fun things to share about their day when I picked them up and developed very close relationships with their teachers. During the time we were there, there was VERY low turn over and even now after being gone from there for a year most of the same staff remains. There were parties to celebrate so many fun things, a leprechaun that made a mess on St Patricks day. A big summer family bbq for all the families and staff to interact outside of the normal day to day routine. There was a company that brought ponies out to ride and get pictures with, class pictures a couple times a year. There were field trips for the pre k class, things my older son still remembers fondly. So many wonderful memories and activites that my boys experienced because of the staff and love at APFK. The curriculum, art activities, outside play all exceeded my expectations. At one point my older son was showing some signs of struggle, his teachers and the director (Ramona) were actively involved with me while I made Dr's appts etc to help figure out what was going on. They were always very positive and honest with me."
"Both my son (2 years) and daughter (5 years) attend A Place For Kids. After having both been in in-home daycares, this was an easy adjustment into a larger daycare school. It's been almost a year now since they've been attending, and we are all very happy.
I can't even refer to APFK as a daycare, because it's more than that. It truly is a school, even for the youngest of kids. My son was not quite two when he started, and even that group was learning, and being held accountable. It's great knowing that when we leave the kids in the morning, they are treated like family (because that's what it's like with all the teachers there) and they are also learning, and having fun.
We have been very happy at APFK, and even more importantly, both of our kids love it there! Sometimes it's hard to even get them to leave and come home with us in the afternoons!
"My daughter attended APFK for almost 4 years and we could not have been happier. We originally chose APFK due to the loving and nurturing environment we witnessed when we toured.
Our daughter started in the baby room when she was 3 months old. Kathy and the rest of the staff in the baby room provided her with such a loving and nurturing environment that she still jumps up and down with excitement when she gets to go back and visit.
In the toddler room & Pre-K she just blossomed under the caring supervision of the wonderful staff. She learned so much from an educational standpoint that she was completely up to speed when we placed her in a private school for Kindergarten."
"Great childcare center with truly amazing teachers!!"
"My husband and I have two girls that both attended APFK. We love the kindness and knowledge of the staff. Our girls were there for 4 years. We are so grateful that APFK made it easier to be working parent not having to worry about our girls well being. Thank you much for all the nourishment that you gave to our girls."
