My son has been at this daycare for about 5 moths now. He has learned so much being there. They don't praise themselves in anyway. They are not corrupting anything. I wanted my son to be in a Christian based daycare. They exceed his needs in every way possible. I love creation kingdom for all they have done for both me and my son. I have nothing but positive things to say about them and their education!!

That place is into making money..and lots of it.

You have to pay an initial registration fee of $75 per child, as well as a $250 deposit per child ( i guess in case they poop on the carpet and ruin it like a dog), and of course the weekly fee depending on how many days (full time is $187 for a toddler).

Obviously they are trying to cater to the rich or well off. If they were truly a Christian daycare, they would see that providing love and care for children doesn't require a "creation kingdom" that warrants high prices. Regular daycasre are much cheaper and would suit any kid if they set them up properly.

I like the idea of a daycare having accessible cameras on site. But I don't like the idea that I'm paying for those cameras in the price.

This place is a joke. We need someone to build a REAL christian daycare that caters to everyone, and not just the well off. Jesus wouldn't have approved of this daycare.

Kids are too young to understand religion, so people should not expose them to it. Religion is like porn - it should be available only to adults.

Kids are only too young for religion if its taken literally. The Bible was never meant to be interpreted as historical events. The purpose of it was to educate children about life and protect them from the corruption of a materialistic society. We are living in a society that is becoming worse because of the lack of religion. Money doesn't save anyone and we have seen this proof in Hollywood for decades. People who have heavy bank accounts don't follow God and that's why I question the authenticity of Creation Kingdom daycare or any other that sets the cost threshold too high for most people.

The USA is the most Christian country of the world, and yet you complain about the lack of religion. One cannot be elected into high offices, unless being a Christian.
Here in Europe we have less materialistic, less Christian countries, figuring out morals without religion. It is a tough job, and there is growing competition from Islam, but we may get there.

Hunny they aren't money hungry. They actually do help people. My son is full time there and I only pay 80$ a week. It's your opinion and youre entitled to it. My opinion is I love the daycare.

and who is appointed the grand judge to to figure out the morals of others. If you believe in any organized religion there is only one true judge. I'm not an xtian so I dont subscribe to those faerie tales!

If you have complaints then don't post them on the Internet. Call the proper people in charge of the facility you are sending your child to.

I am not sure I understand your reply. My point was that in some european countries we are figuring morals out that are *not* based on religion, but on the well being of individuals and of society. Religion should not be priviledged in society. That is why it annoys me that after having removed most of christianity out of the public space, we allow Islam to claim public space.

Religious people have an incomprehensible disregard for evidence-based reasoning. If I cannot trust their reasoning, how can I trust them with leading my country or with morality?

My child currently goes to CK and I'll be honest I don't think its worth the extra money. Its just like any other daycare. I have yet to see a teacher try to teach baby sign, have group circle, or any exploration stations.( things they promise to do) Its very frustrating trying to find the best care for your child when you have to work. The things I like about Ck are how clean the facility is. They hired an outside cleaning crew that comes every day. I like the teacher - child ratio is lower than what the State recommends. I appreciate the convience of the hamburg location. And Most of the staff are pleasant and very nice to us. All in all I'm still on the fence about this place....

oh, they hired a crew? when I worked there they forced the employees to clean the place up every evening. it was really unfair to make us clean an entire building on top of watching kids. sometimes we'd be there after our scheduled time, then rather than be fair and pay us overtime, they'd make us take a longer lunch come friday.

let me tell you, this is the worst job i ever had. it's not the directors' fault, it's the owners. they're a couple of money hungry people who don't give a crap about their employees or the children. they would lie to us constantly and never followed up on their word. for instance, one week we had several people on vacation and they asked us if we wanted to get some overtime. we agreed, resulting in several people working at least 10 hours everyday. however, on friday they made us sign out for longer lunch breaks or take two long breaks during the day so we wouldn't have overtime. they'd have contests between the locations to see who could get the most new enrollments, but then take months to give the prizes. also, when you first start working there, they make you sign a paper giving up your right to 10 minute breaks. if you need to use the bathroom you have to call the office and pray that the director or asst director can come relieve you for minute; however, sometimes you'd wait 30 minutes to an hour before they could get free to come to your classroom. not to mention the pay is terrible. even if you already have a college degree, you can't make more money unless you are enrolled in the early childhood education program. it was really frustrating to basically be told that my four years of college meant nothing because I wasn't taking those courses. people there who barely finished high school were making $2 more than me because I didn't want to waste government money getting a degree I knew I wasn't interested in.

most of the employees there are wonderful and genuinely love the children, at least the ones who were there when i was. unfortunately, a person can only take so much from their employer. I worked there for almost a year and during that time, they had lost every lead teacher in every room except for one, plus countless teaching assistants and floaters. I would never send my child to a place who treats their employees so terribly. it's a shame when the children's parents treat you better than your boss does! the parents I had were wonderful, always remembering our birthdays and giving us cards and gifts for christmas, valentine's day and even teacher appreciation week. i miss those kids all the time but it wasn't worth being treated like i was nothing, and I couldn't stand seeing the way the kids were seen as moneymakers. in the weeks before i left they had given the wrong bottle to a baby (the baby was fed another mother's breast milk), and a teacher had left behind a two year old in a dark room by himself and didn't even realize it. i knew after these events occurred that I had to get out myself.

I've worked at CK for a while now. Mistakes are made from time to time, though to be clear, no place is perfect. The cost of the facility is more than most, but not in order to make out with lots of profit. A building as large as CK, with as many amenities as it has, requires lots of money to make it happen. C'mon folks! Common sense! The $250 deposit (referenced in an earlier comment) goes towards the last two weeks of a child's time at CK...with a two weeks notice prior to disenrollment, a family sees every penny of that money. The $75 registration fee is typical of any facility you will use.

The 10-minute break that employees were asked to sign away is no longer signed. And breaks, as needed, are given. Pay is fair, and though not what some would like to make, at least it's a paying job with benefits.

And wow....I can't understand the comments made by some that "religion" is for adults only. First of all, religion is an organized thing, and even Jesus hated religion....but we don't teach religion. We teach about Jesus. And if a child wants to ask Jesus into their heart, we encourage the child to talk with Mom and Dad about that decision.

For those that don't like that idea, then don't choose a childcare that teaches about Jesus. But for those that believe that a relationship with the God who made the world and the stars and the planets and YOU, is important, then a childcare that teaches about Jesus is key. Whether it's CK or someplace else.

It amazes me how much complaining people do, and how much they want to be heard, even in some obscure corner of the internet.

I just have say how much I love this program. My daughter is so extrememly happy and so well taken care of at Creation Kingdom. She has been at Creation Kingdom for over a year now. I am absolutely amazed at the curriculum and teachers. The curriculum is definitely well chosen and followed through. I can't tell you how much she has learned, it is astounding. Also, her teachers make her feel so loved and welcome every day that she is there. They really have become such an instrumental part in her life. After being at Creation Kingdom, my daughter will be more than ready for school in all areas, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. I can not praise this company enough.

You don't know what Jesus would have approved. Maybe he would have wanted you to stop complaining and dish out. What? Real Christians aren't supposed to have money? You like cameras, but you don't want to pay for them. STFU
