We love Kids R Kids, Blakeney! After looking into and visiting SO many schools, my husband and I walked into Kids R Kids and immediately knew this was the school we wanted to send our daughter. The classrooms are what we remember when we were kids, they were colorful and full of work the children and teachers did. You just get this feel-good and positive energy as soon as you walk in and to top it off the staff/teachers are amazing! They lead with so much passion and a loving mindset. Everyone takes such great care of my baby girl, it makes me happy to send her off every morning and know she’ll be taken care of.In summary, our daughter always is excited about going to school! The teachers really make an effort to engage the kids and develop them in a very individualized way. The management is really committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment and we’re very thankful to entire team at Kids R Kid, Blakeney.

As a first time parent, during a pandemic no less, we were very torn over sending our 5 month old daughter to daycare. A month prior to beginning daycare, we had a conversation with the lead teacher, Mrs. Jo, where she instantly put our minds to ease. Mrs. Jo and the other Infant teachers have been amazing. Our daughter has grown SO much in the last 10 months from the staffs expertise and care. Mrs. Jo goes out of her way to answer all questions and concerns we have, and offer suggestions to aid our littles ones development.Mrs. Sarah and Mrs. Lauren (assistant principals) are amazing at keeping everyone up to date on what is going throughout the week, as well as answering any general questions that we have.Mrs. Jordan, the Toddler One teacher, was very informative and thorough in her introductory phone call, and we have had a great experience so far in Toddler One.We have felt that they are very COVID safe, that the school is clean and safe, and that the menu is very well thought out. (My family loves to look at the menu each week and always remarks on the array of delicious foods my daughter is experiencing).We also love the fact that there is a web-cam so we can peek in on our daughter throughout the day.We are so grateful for Kids R Kids and the care that they give our daughter.

We are so thankful we found Krk! As first-time parents, sending our child to daycare at just four months old in the middle of a pandemic was nerve-racking to say the least. We knew after our initial call with Mrs. Jo in Infant I, that this was the place for us! Mrs. Jo and the rest of the staff have taken care of our daughter like she was their very own. I LOVE reading the take home notes to see what fun learning activities are going on throughout the day. As a parent I always feel well informed. Sarah at the front desk is always so on top of it! Sarita and Lauren at the front desk have been so amazing as well! We feel so lucky to have found a place like Krk. These people are awesome! It is so clear to us that our child is in great hands and truly adored.

Our family feels so fortunate to have our son enrolled at KrK Blakeney! As a first time mom, finding child care during the pandemic was one the most challenging things I’ve ever done. The school takes careful precautions to protect the well-being of the children and staff. Overall, KrK has surpassed my expectations for a day care. Mrs. Jo is such a special teacher and leads the Infant I program with kindness and deep expertise. The other teachers and aides in the infant program take such good care of my son. I love checking in throughout the day to see all the fun that the little ones are having. It makes me so happy to see how much my son has learned in this program. I highly recommend this school and the amazing teachers and administrators that provide exceptional educational programs and care.

Our daughter began attending KRK when she was 5 months old in their Infant One class with Mrs. Jo. We cannot say enough positive things about her and KRK. The communication from admin is great and the staff is very helpful.

I have been very happy with Kids r Kids...the staff and teachers are thoughtful, kind, and take wonderful care of all the kids. They are very responsive to any concerns and it genuinely feels like a family. As working parents it’s one of the biggest decisions to make. You want that peace of mind knowing your children are safe and well taken care of...every parent does. I am so happy I chose Kids R Kids!

My son has been going to Kids R Kids since he was 5 months old and I cannot imagine sending him anywhere else. The staff and teachers treat him like their own! He continues to amaze me with the new things he learns on a daily basis driven by the curriculum in place. Highly recommend KRK!

We’ve been bringing all of our children here since we moved here several years ago. We are continually impressed by the instruction and education they are receiving here. KRK definitely prepares the children well for elementary school!

Like any parent, I value my child. I want him to feel nurtured and to learn. Teaching him values and how to treat others fairly and with compassion is a constant focus. Kids R Kids-The Academy at Blakeney has always felt like a partner in this endeavor. Every day they help my child learn how to appropriately interact with other children his age as well as adults and teachers. They offer daily activities to help enrich his learning through hands on experience. Kids R Kids isn’t a day care facility, they are a teaching facility with a focus on learning and growth of our children. If you are lucky enough to be given an opportunity to enroll your child, don’t hesitate. This has been one of the best decisions my husband and I have made for our child. I am so thankful for the caliber of teachers and parents and friends that we have become acquainted with. Kids R Kids-The Academy at Blakeney is an amazing and special place.

As full-time working parents it’s a very hard decision to make when it comes trusting someone with your kids. Thanks to the wonderful staff at KRK this decision was a rather easy one to make. They love my children and are genuinely invested in their well being. My children are constantly learning and engaged in activities. We also enjoy the photos the teachers text to capture a moment that they know we wouldn’t want to miss!

I can’t say enough good things about this school! We switched our daughter from another daycare center at 14 weeks and saw a huge change almost immediately. The teachers really take the time and work with the kids on different skills. The atmosphere is so friendly, and you really feel like everyone in the facility knows what’s going on and is on the same page. We travel out of our way to take our daughter here, but it’s well worth the drive!

Kids R Kids Academy at Blakeney has always made us feel like family. I wanted to acknowledge the exceptional care that they have given to both of my girls. The staff is passionate about teaching and in return create an environment that is rich in education. Their teachers encourage our girls to be their best. Their kindness and honesty is exceptional. The constant drive to create a fun and creative learning environment is seen everyday in my children.

I am overly satisfied with the services that have been provided to my family from Kids R Kids at Blakeney. My daughter first started in the Private Kindergarten Program where she flourished and was able to start 1st grade early. She mastered all levels on her first term 1st grade report card. Thanks to Mrs. Stroupe and the staff at Kids R Kids that not only made the experience pleasurable but have remained a part of our lives for the Before and After School Program. I highly recommend Kids R Kids at Blakeney for your child’s developmental needs.

Kids R Kids at Blakeney is the absolute best! As first time parents, our list of needs and wants in a school was a mile long and Kids R Kids at Blakeney has surpassed them all. I know our child is loved and very well taken care of while we are at work. You can tell each teacher loves children and their job. The staff, communication, curriculum, and cleanliness are top notch! There aren’t enough words to describe comfort and peace when leaving your child. Thank you to everyone at KRK Blakeney for all that you do to create such a wonderful learning and loving environment.

We have been a part of the Kids R Kids family at Blakeney since my children were 5 months old. We have had a very positive experience over the past 6.5 years with the teachers and the staff. I have always felt comfortable that I could speak with the administration regarding any needs for my children, or even issues that I felt we needed to discuss. No learning center is perfect, but I consider it to be a great place for because they are open to feedback and able to meet specific needs your child may have. I have always felt that the owner, administration, and teachers have had the best interest of my children in mind. If I had to make a choice for my children all over again, I would not change a thing. They have been very successful, in part due to the experiences they have had at KRK Blakeney.

This is the best daycare in Charlotte! Kids R Kids is safe, clean and has a positive environment for children to learn and grow. I love that when I go to pick my daughter up after work, she doesn’t want to leave. She loves her teachers! The teachers really spend the time to make sure each child is growing in all areas of learning.

My 6 yr old son attended TK here and is now in K. He excels in reading and math because of the preparation he received in KRK. I also have a preschooler who attends KRK. Everyday I drop him off and can go to work in peace knowing that he is in great hands. Principals and teachers are very hands on and communication is excellent. My children have flourished in this school. I highly highly recommend it.

Kids R Kids - The Academy at Blakeney was recommended to us by a few other families, and after we took a tour, we knew it was where we wanted our first child to be enrolled and our second child now goes there as well. They provide just the right amount of structure and they truly care about the development and growth of each child. We are so amazed at what our children learn each day and they have lots of fun while doing it. They have by far exceeded our expectations!

Couldnt be happier on how my kids learn every day. The progress they have been showing in a small period of time is jaw dropping. We come from a different daycare and we love the structure and teaching material that KRK has in place.

My family and I moved to the area from out of town. Having previously been closely acquainted with the owner of a pristine early childhood center in my hometown, I knew exactly what I was looking for and the bar was set VERY high. I was not going to accept anything but beyond the very best when it came to the care of our 9 month old. I visited EVERYWHERE, every childcare center, early development and learning facility, church, private work from home nanny, you name it. Kids R Kids The Academy at Blakeney was the only establishment that was even close to meeting the standards required. The staff are family, not only to our children, but to the parents of all of the children that are honored to attend. Our second child attends KRK also, and hopefully we will be blessed to have our 3rd that is on the way attend as well. Our then 9 month old is now a rising 1st grader. She was so well prepared for Kindergarten, and the entire year was somewhat of a breeze thanks to the preparations of the teachers at Kids R Kids. I dont know how we would have gotten through these years without them. We have now established an extended family in the area due to the close relationships we have created with the other children and families of those children. I could go and on - Kids R Kids Academy at Blakeney is the best!

Both of our kids have been at Kids R Kids since they were a couple of months old. We have been very happy with how far they have come in school and how the whole staff works together to create the best possible environment for them to thrive. My older daughter, who is going into 2nd grade, begs to go to summer camp there to see her friends and teachers that she has grown up with. The teachers have always kept us informed with how our kids are doing both socially and academically as well. I could not have asked for a better school and always recommend Kids R Kids to anyone who is looking for a great school!

As a first time parent, dropping your child off at a new place can be a nerve-racking experience, but the staff at Kids R Kids- The Academy at Blakeney made it easy. Since those first days at Kids R Kids, our son has grown into a happy, fun-loving, and talkative 2 year old. Weve adored each teacher and all of the administrators at Kids R Kids - all of whom genuinely care for the growth, development, and happiness of our son. Kids R Kids is not just a daycare, but a school with a well-rounded and thoughtfully planned curriculum. Our son has learned an incredible amount during his time at Kids R Kids - from counting, to potty training, to a large vocabulary - the list goes on and on. Most importantly, he genuinely enjoys going to school and we know he will continue to thrive in the years to come.

I have been a parent at Kids R Kids for 6 Year’s now and consider most of the teachers and staff family. My now 6 year old is in 1st grade and when he went from preschool to Kindergarten he was already ahead of most students. He still attends summer camp and loves it! I have a 3yr old who has been there since he was an infant and he loves going to school every day. As an infant he was getting spoiled by the amount of attention he was getting. This is an amazing school and so happy to be a part of it. The feeling of knowing when you drop your child off everyday they are being well taken care of, is priceless!!!

We switched from another daycare center because we wanted more structure and challenge for our 2 year old and we are very happy with the acomplishments so far. Now our second child is enrolled as well and she is loving it!

Our daughter has been there now for almost 1.5 years, starting out in the infant room. Over the first 4 classrooms weve enjoyed all the teachers and the work theyve put into our daughter. Her social skills have been growing at a rapid pace and vocabulary is through the roof. Even potty training at a much faster pace than her older sister. The front desk has been extremely helpful and welcoming during drop-off/pick-up. Theyve also answered all my calls or e-mails in a timely manner. Our oldest daughter loves Summer Camp there as well which has been a huge plus. Saves us time by not having to schedule multiple camps. KidsRKids keeps the Summer Camps occupied with a lot of activities and trips.

My daughter has attended Pre-K here since August 2015 and we have been very pleased with her progress and leadership at the school. They helped us work through some challenging behavior issues by being very patient and understanding. Thank you for your dedication to excellence!

We brought our daughter here, from another center, when she was 9 months old. She just turned 3! The staff has been nothing but welcoming and loving to our daughter. Honestly, without their quick observation, we would not have gotten an early intervention program going for her. They have fantastic extracurricular activities available for the students. All of them are fun and educational and/or support developmental milestones to thrive. I would absolutely recommend KidsRKids Blakeney to anyone. The teachers are amazing and really deserve so much more for what they do to get our kids on the right track academically and as good citizens.

Do your research...and AVOID this place. There are much better options in the area that will not bend your childs personality to fit their one size fits all approach.

Kids R Kids--The Academy at Blakeney is not only an amazing school but truly a second family. Our son has been attending this school for over 3 years and enjoys the positive, learning environment. Our family and friends comment regularly on our sons development as they are consistently blown away by the academic skills he has learned. The teachers and staff at KRK foster a test and learn environment to support each child. We strongly recommend KRK to every parent looking to enroll their child in daycare or preschool.

We love this place and wouldnt want our son anywhere else. In fact, when we move in 2 weeks weve decided to drive the extra 30 minutes each day because KRK really is that good. Weve toured 14 daycares...no joke, 14. Nothing compares to the amazing staff and curriculum in place. Like many other parents have said, its not just a day care, its a place of learning. Most importantly, I can tell that his teachers really care about him which means everything to me. Im thrilled about the fun years ahead for our little man!

Both of our children have attended KRK since they were a few months old and we have had great experiences. We drive an extra 15 minutes to and from the school every day because we know that they are well cared for and are getting an excellent education. We toured ~10 schools before deciding on KRK and had a special feeling when we walked into KRK – we just knew it was where we wanted our kids to grow and develop. The staff is extremely caring and in constant communication regarding our children’s development. Having the ability to check in on the kids throughout the day with the video access gives us peace of mind.

Kids R Kids - The Academy at Blakeney has been a part of our family since August of 2010. Our oldest child started in the infant room and went through every classroom to TK. He loved his kind, knowledgeable, and patient teachers, and was well prepared for kindergarten. Our daughter is 3 and has had the same wonderful experience. Being working parents is always a tough choice, but knowing our children were in such good hands at KRK has made it easier. Wed recommend KRK to anyone and know its the best in the area!

Our daughter has attended KRK The Academy at Blakeney beginning at 6 months old. We were previously enrolled at another local School and made the tough decision to move to KRK when we were contacted after reaching the top of the wait list. Weve been extremely happy with the attentiveness and personal attention that our daughter receives as well as the education she is receiving. She surprises us each day with something new shes learned and we have felt very satisfied with that difficult decision to move her. KRK The Academy at Blakeney has outpaced our expectations and I cannot recommend them enough.

Our 3 children have been attending KrK since infancy, and we couldnt be more pleased with the school.The administration is engaged- always aware of whats happening in each classroom and knows each child by name.. The teachers are top notch; Im always hesitant when one of my children transitions to the next classroom with new teachers (as we have gotten attached to current teachers) but I have never been disappointed and the children continue to thrive.Im amazed with how much and how well they teach. Krk blakeney basically potty trained my children and has given them the tools to be successful in elementary school.My husband and I were sold the day we toured 6 daycare facilities when I was newly pregnant with #1, and we have never looked back. So grateful for KRK!

Our daughter started attending KRK Blakeney at 4months old, she is now a happy, fun loving 2 year old. She absolutely loves this place as do we. From the first day we had our tour we knew this was the perfect place for our child to grow, learn and most importantly have fun. She is so loved by every teacher/assistant that she has had and we are so gratetful for each one of them. We are blown away by how much this school offers. Even her grandparents are amazed at the things she is doing and is exposed to... they refer to KRK as the baby college. We could not be happier to be a part of the KRK family.

HORRIBLE PLACE! We had the worst possible experience. Do your research before you take your children here. I would not recommend this to anyone.
