We transitioned from a private sitter to KER and we have had such a positive experience. The center is very clean, bright, and conducive for learning. The best part is the staff. Most of them know my kid’s names and wave to them as we pass by the classrooms. You just get a good vibe when you walk into the center and that is important as a parent. I recommend KER to all our neighbors and friends.
The team at KER takes such good care of our daughter. We feel comfortable and safe putting her in their care every day. They keep us in the loop with all of the happenings of her day and send pictures too!
I am an employee of KER. I was drawn in by the cleanliness of the facility and the upbeat nature of all of the staff. I have been there for five months and have loved every second of it. I even have a child who attends the center, and he is the happiest I have ever seen him! If you’re looking for a fun, professional, caring, and clean environment to bring your child into, KER is the place!
Our kids have been at KER since summer 2020. We continue to be impressed with the facility, cleanliness, curriculum, and staff. Our son is starting kindergarten in the fall, and we are so confident that he will be absolutely prepared based on his time at KER (special shout out to Ms. Karla)!
"Good evening! I’ve been meaning to send a note about how truly amazing Miss Mariah is!
As I’m sure you know, it’s so challenging leaving your child at such a young age.
Miss Mariah seamlessly is able to address the needs of all of the children. She provides meaningful updates at the end of each day and is focused on developmental progress for all children. Our kids love Miss Mariah more than us ? She is a perfect fit for taking care of infants and we appreciate her so much!"
