What Parents Say

“As a first time mom, it was overwhelming and scary to leave my daughter with ‘strangers’ after spending 12 weeks with her. Those ‘strangers’ quickly turned to beloved friends to not only my daughter, but also to my husband and me! They helped us tremendously in her first year (hitting milestones, being ready for different activities, recommendations, you name it) and it just keeps getting better!

“She is so happy to go to Kiddi Kollege – the entire staff (not just her teachers) greet her by name and that certainly makes drop-off easier for this mama! It’s easy to see that her teachers have a genuine interest in her and they aren’t “just doing their job”. She is constantly learning and it’s great to watch her grow and develop! We already know it will be tough to leave when she is ready for kindergarten but are so fortunate to be in the Kiddi Kollege family for the first 5 years. The care she gets is unsurpassed and we truly couldn’t be happier that she has an extended family that teach, nurture and love her every day!”
– Dailey Family

“Kiddi Kollege of Falcon Ridge is a great child care facility. The teachers and administrators are warm and caring. Very convenient for school age pick up, drop offs, school holidays, and a very fun summer camp program. My 3yo is learning a great deal including spelling/writing her name, counting, reading numbers, and is already itching to start reading books on her own.”
– Carter Family

“My daughter has attended Kiddi Kollege since she was 3 months old. As a first time mom, you worry about your child being in someone else’s arms. However, her Kiddi Kollege teachers treated my daughter as one of their own. They gave me very detailed updates daily, sent me photos when I was missing her a little extra and were truly invested in her development and achievement of milestones.

“She is now in their Older Toddler room and continues to thrive socially and developmentally. I love that my daughter runs to hug her teachers and that every staff member in the building knows her by name and says hi to her as we walk the halls during drop-offs. It truly has been a wonderful experience and we are grateful for our Kiddi Kollege family.”
– Carlson Family

“We are so thankful to have found our way to Kiddi Kollege. As our family continues to grow we find great satisfaction in how well our children are cared for, and also how much focus is put into teaching them as they grow and develop. As working parents it is so wonderful to have a childcare center our kids are excited to attend!”
– Cope Family

“Our child has gone to Kiddi Kollege of Falcon Valley for three year. We love the curriculum and the fun activities available to her. Kiddi Kollege is building the foundation for learning to be fun!”
– Schmidt Family
