"They are great and very professional. They have a curriculum and are very hands on. The meals are pretty good and they make them everyday. The director, Miss

"We stopped by without an appointment for a tour. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. When the time came, they were able to open a spot for my daughter." She has been going for 2 weeks now and is doing really well. The teachers work with the children to help them develop age appropriate skills. My daughter is always happy at this facility.

Daycare Center reviews in Mcallen

A

My daughter really struggled with the transition from staying at home to daycare but GKA did so good with her. They would work with her one on one and provide her with what she needed at the time to adjust. She also had a hard time adjusting to napping on a schedule and they were just so accommodating to her needs and schedule until she caught on. She now enjoys going there and doesn't want to leave at the end of the day. This is just such a great place and everyone who works there is so amazing and genuine towards the kids.

The teachers and staff provide superb and consistent pre-school and after school services for my grandson. The school is in our local community and the student/teacher ratio seems appropriate. My grandson loves attending their school…he happily jumps into activities when he arrives in the morning. When I pick him up in the evening he is playing with other children or one of the teachers. The facility has a nice fenced playground with sand footing. Homework projects, reading logs and monthly lesson plans are all sent home to keep family informed on what the children are learning!

The person who gave us the tour did a fine job. She seemed knowledgable and invested in the daycare center. What we didn't like were:
1) The facility - it seemed more gloomy and cluttered and closed in than other centers we toured.
2) The level of professionalism of some staff/teachers -dressed in dirty, holy clothes, had greasy hair...it just turned me off. That aside, she was kind and engaged with our child in the 5 minutes she saw her.
3) The menu. ATROCIOUS. Some of the menu items for lunch were: corn dogs, pizza rolls, chicken nuggets... I asked why they fed this stuff to kids and whether there were other options and was told "This food is FDA approved and kid friendly." That's not food and it's not friendly to anyone - it's laden with toxic additives.
What we did like:
1) The responsiveness of the staff
2) The price. It was cheaper than comparable options. It is not accredited but I'm not sure how much that matters for kids as young as mine.
We ended up choosing a bilingual school that serves organic food.

My wife and I have been taking our son to
Mcallen Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
since October of this year. As he is our first child and in daycare for the first time we really did not know what to expect. We called and took a tour with
Mcallen Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
that week. They had several openings in the Infant room and we were able to get in without a wait list immediately.
Everything has exceeded our expectations in just a few short months. The teachers in the infant room that he is in are amazing and genuinely seem to have his best interest at heart. They sometimes text us pictures and are in constant contact throughout the day.
You are responsible for all of the diapers, wipes, formula/breastmilk when your child is in the infant room. For 4 days a week we are paying $255/week. It is a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for. We have needed to change which day of the week he doesn't come several times, and they are more than willing to work with our schedule when we need them to. Every time i drop him off or pick him up, the teachers never seem overwhelmed and they always have a good handle on the small class size.
The director

is great and is always very proactive about keeping us in the loop.
I would absolutely recommend this

to anyone looking for child care.

The staff was warm and friendly and the facility is nice. I did not feel they provided enough structure for kids and the classroom size was too large. My son was 1 at the time and I would watch him on video playing alone the days he was there. They never seemed to have a structured curriculum for learning for. We moved our son after 2 weeks, he never warmed to them.

They have done a great job so far. Our son seems to really like going there, and smiles a lot at the teachers. I have no issues and we plan on using them as long as we stay in the area.

I originally enrolled my son in one of the chain child care centers but after being there to observe, I had an uneasy feeling about the cleanliness of the facility and care givers as well as the lack of hands-on attention they provided the babies. Therefore, I withdrew him from the center after one day and began the

for other care. During my tour of one of the more reputable child care centers, it was mentioned they refer parents to

when there are no immediate openings at their facility. I had only heard of
Mcallen Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
by name since I had no desire to place my son in an in-home daycare and had not even considered that possibility. I am so, so glad that I gave it a shot and scheduled my visit.
Mcallen Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
has been a true blessing. I immediately enrolled my son and we have both been very content from the first day. You get the best of both types of child care - the quality and "curriculum" of a facility daycare with the comfort and feel of an in-home setting. The teachers/care givers are fantastic with the babies/infants/toddlers and they've all become like family. My son is genuinely happy when we arrive everyday. Give

a visit - you won't be disappointed! I gave a "B" for price because it is a little expensive, but the price is comparable to other child care facilities in the local

She was a huge help with especially our oldest child. She's very good with the kids; our kids loved her. She's an excellent teacher. She was lovely, but firm and able to keep the kids in check when needed. I feel my kids have learned more here than anywhere else.
