Kristyn Jones

I started working at A Kids World when my daughter Kinsley was only 3 months old. Both staff and management were so welcoming and helpful while I navigated working full time with an infant. Going on two years later Kinsley is now in the toddler room and loves coming to school every day! She talks about the garden often and loves checking on the chickens daily.  

I am so great full for the experiences she has at AKW!  

Jodi Atkins

“Our favorite part about this center is the amazing Farm to Table program, they send a weekly menu, and our daughter eats so many different foods while she is there!  

The staff is wonderful, they greet our daughter every day with a smile, and she is always so happy to see them. These people truly care about your children and their safety. We love A Kid’s World!” 

Mark and Kenia Leavenworth 

Our two boys, Mark and Paul have attended AKW since 2016.  

We were looking for a safe, nurturing daycare in the area and came across AKW.  

Every teacher that our boys have had throughout the years have been loving and caring.  

The meals are very healthy, and the center is very clean.  

We feel very comfortable leaving our boys there, and love the option of taking a peek in on them throughout the day  with the optional camera system.  We feel very blessed to have AKW caring for our children!

My son is currently in the summer transition program at A Kid's World. I cant say enough good things about this place. They have been amazing with my son! They have answered any questions i have promptly, and are always so welcoming and happy to help. The staff and teachers are some of the nicest people i have ever met! Theyre so up beat and you can tell they really love what they do. 

Kristen Hadaway

We absolutely love A Kid's World. My first child started attending the center when he was 1 1/2 and grew up there all the way until he was 11. We loved it so much that when our second child arrived we knew instantly where she would be going. She started the center at 12 weeks and is now 2 years old. We love the ProCare app where we can know everything that goes on with our child, from pottying to pictures to what they ate and how long they napped. We also love the cameras where we can log in anytime and see our child in real time. Also, we love the food selection that A Kid's World provides. I also think it's pretty awesome that the center has its own garden and chicken coop. Ms. Shannon has really put her heart into the center over the years making sure it's the best place for our children. I highly recommend A Kid's World and wouldn't think of going anywhere else.   

Thank you for all that you do!

Jennifer Holcombe

We love A Kids World! I knew my son would have a hard time leaving me and being away from me because he's always been home with me. They worked with him (and me because I was just as emotional). He loves going now and he is learning so much! We did move recently and normally I would change his daycare but I can't!! I absolutely will drive 1 hour every morning for a place my child can stay for the day that is safe, educational, and most of all HE IS HAPPY!!!  

THANK YOU A KIDS WORLD

The Edwards Family

We have had our children in daycares since they could walk. It wasn’t until coming to A Kids World that I realized what we had been missing out on all these years. The staff is so friendly and we truly find comfort when leaving our children there during the day to be cared for while we go to work to provide for our family. Our son walks in the doors so excited each day and is greeted by name by most of the staff. He loves the interaction he has with class pets and real live animals and comes home everyday with new stories to tell. The teachers in the classroom provide such transparency about what goes on each day and that alone gives us, as parents, so much relief. A Kids World is more than a day care center for us. They are family. 

Steven & Kelly Whire 

We started with AKW right as the pandemic hit. During this very difficult time of change, I couldn't have been happier with our choice in daycare. The teachers and staff are great at communication which is so important, especially during such a crazy year. Aside from constant communication regarding health and safety issues, the teachers have been so awesome with my little one. As an only child, we have seen him blossom and grow, learning and sharing with his friends at school. I can't say enough great things about Grant's teachers... they are more than just a "daycare"... they are truly teaching the children every day and genuinely care for each child. We couldn't be happier with where our little man is attending "school"! 

Thanks for all you do! 

Carla Bunker

I could not be more pleased with A Kid's World and their staff. My son loves going there, and we have not had any issues, but I know that if there were an issue, it would be responded to quickly, professionally, and resolved. I highly recommend this day care. It is affordable and provides quality meals and learning experiences for your child. You can also log in and watch your child at any time through cctv, which gives such peace of mind that your child is being taken care of well.

Britt A

My 2 year old has been coming here for a month and he absolutely loves it. We’ve had bad experiences with daycares so it’s nice to be able to see his face light up when I ask him if he’s ready to go see his friends and teachers.I remember his first day I watched the camera all day. And now I rarely check it because I know how taken care of he is. We ❤️ It here.

JENNIFER LEE

I have worked here for 15 years come this August and all of my 3 children and 2 grandchildren have attended the school. I am proud of all the achievements this school has made to make the lives of children better. Both my boys started the school at 6 weeks of age and one still attends the school agers before care program. They have learned how to be better people by expressing their emotions in a positive way. I have made personal interactions with all of their caregivers and have been able to express concerns I might have had without any negative feedback. The staff has always made the children feel welcomed and loved. I would never consider any other place for my children.

Estrella Luna

Completely recommend the school. All of the staff is amazing. They will go above and beyond to help you and your needs. They take great care of our children very highly recommend!!!!!!!

Kasey Boggs

As a member of the administration, and a parent of this center, I cannot say enough good things about this place! I have worked here for 11 years, and both of my children have attended here. This place has been a true blessing in our lives! My son, and daughter both loved it here! Not only did they learn as much as they did, with the amazing teachers here, but both have developed friendships that will last a lifetime. Shannon Smith is one of the two bosses I will never regret working for. The love she has put into this center shows!!!!! This place isn't just a daycare center for us, it's another part of our family.

Erin McReed

I give A Kid's World 5 Stars!! My son has been going for 3 months now for the first time in Day Care and I am so at ease leaving him here with these amazing teachers!

Malika’s Lovely Life

I can honestly say I love A kids world my kids attend the school and they live it the work with you and show they care. I have a newborn who attends and the love his three teachers and the front shows him is so amazing. He smiles everyday when he sees them. I also have twins in the pre-K and they love school they work with them and have so much patience is just a blessing and I’m forever greatful.

Christina Sheahan

I have worked here almost 2 weeks, and although that isn't very long, I can tell that the employees here are like one big family! Shannon is one of the most kind employers that I have had! The staff here makes sure that you have everything you need to be successful! I could not have asked for a better job! Considering the fact I had a horrible experience at my last job, AKW, makes me happy and I am so glad to work here!

Filloreta Preniqi

Great place. My daughter attends pre-k and her teachers and great and friendly.

Kristina Chamblee

I have been working at AKW since the beginning of February, Shannon and the staff are like a family. Shannon always shows us her appreciation. The center is a loving environment where the kids can have fun and learn. Both of my kids go to AKW and their teachers are amazing. Without a doubt is a 5 star center 😊

Kristina Chamblee

My daughter has been here since she was 6 weeks old now she's almost 14 months old and I'm still very appreciative of this place and the teachers I've met thus far. Especially her teacher now Alyssa she's amazing !!

Perriaw

I have been employed at AKW for 6 years. My experience has been amazing. I’ve learned so much about the childcare industry (I’m a former public school employee). AKW has very high expectations of its employees and provides high quality childcare for the families in our community. It is a pleasure to work in a place where I feel appreciated and supported.

Courtly

My children absolutely loved going here . We had to move in the middle of the year so we couldn't stay long but great women work here and so heartwarming and loving . You child or children would love going here

Michelle Kaufman

My daughter has been going to this daycare since she was 2 she is now in the pre k program her teachers are incredible

Kitisha Battle

The care and attention they show to the children is remarkable!! You can tell they are in it for the children and not the money!

Shanon Ellis

absolutely love it here, all the teachers are awesome and my son loves it!

Delilah Tanner

A Kids World has been a major blessing to our family, and honestly our community. My younger sisters, several of my youth group members in the Walton County area and now, my own child have all had wonderful experiences. From the quality rated curriculum to the absolutely amazing teachers and administrators, my child has thrived socially and educationally in early childhood education. The school has been under renovations and is being updated very nicely to match our modern world. I highly recommend them for child care and Headstart/Pre-K.

Jessica Addison

Teachers are loving and well mannered. I am grateful how much my kids love it and relationships they have with the teachers who have taught them so much!

Marlaina Woodward

I visit the center through Babies Can't Wait to provide Early Intervention services. Ms Alexus is a rock star! She raises expectations for kiddos to follow through, praises appropriate behavior and her circle time is on point! Love to visit that classroom!

Kelli Crawford

We love our sons teacher and so does he! (Baby Senior room) Also, we like the healthy food options. Staff is always nice when dropping off and picking him up. His teachers are very responsive if I message them and are also great about messaging me with any thing I need to know of when he is there.

Sylvania Rene

I would highly recommend A Kids World. The teachers & staffs are professional and responsive. I feel comfortable dropping off my sons in their care.

Jennifer Ming

We really love A Kids World! We moved to the area last year and our now 2 year old started attending there. Both classes that he’s been in have been great! The teachers are great with the kids and teach them so much! I’m very comfortable leaving my sweet boy in their care. I highly recommend them.

Brittaney Corey

This daycare goes above and beyond to make sure the kids are happy here. I had a minor issue with a teacher and it was handled exceptionally well. My one year old LOVES her teachers. I can watch her on the camera having fun all day and have peace of mind that my baby is in good hand. Thank you AKW for taking care of my little.

Brooke Maxwell

I absolutely love the staff and facility! As a first time (single) mommy, I had no choice but to enroll my son. He has been going since he was five months old, he loves his teachers and I’d so excited to be dropped off. I also went to this same daycare for many years of my childhood. I’m so thankful they are doing all they can to keep the doors open during this difficult time. Looking forward to many many more years with AKW!

Brittany Rivers

It was such a blessing to find A Kid’s World when my family and I relocated to the area from Kentucky with our 4 and 2 year old daughters. Both of my girls love their teachers, my 4 year old is even upset on the weekends when it’s “not a school day”. I love the safety features of the keypad to enter the building and the new push to exit button that’s out of little ones reach. I receive pictures daily on the app from my 2 year old teachers. I love seeing how she’s spending her day. I can tell that the teachers really care about my kids. Couldn’t rave more about it!

Tonya Porter

After working in childcare for over 10 years, I finally found a place where I feel my experience is welcomed and appreciated. Our professional development is always supported and encouraged, not only by management but my coworkers as well. I look forward to going to work because no matter what personal stressors I may be experiencing, there is always children here that are needing hugs or just a lap to read a story on.

Samantha Johnson

Everyone is so nice! My son loves his Pre-k teachers and he has really excelled here!

Taylor White

I’ve worked for AKW for almost a year, and I can say nothing but good things about this facility and the owner. Shannon is always on top of things, making sure every employee is up to date on their trainings, so we can learn how to better care for children and to insure that these children are very well taken care of. All of the management are awesome too, if you need help with anything all you have to do is ask!! I’ve worked for two other day cares and this one is by far the most amazing! Shannon shows us how much she appreciates our HARD work and dedication to the center by treating us to breakfasts, donuts, coffee, etc. This is no easy job, but these women make it easier for us as teachers. this place is just one huge family!! I love AKW!

Amber Hill

From the moment you walk in the door they are so warm and the teachers understand how to make my child feel welcome in the morning!

Britney Hillman

I have been a teacher at A Kid's World for nearly a year and a half and it has been a great experience.

William Okuma

I have two children that are 8 years apart. I have sent both children to The Kids World during there infant years, toddlers years to their Pre K years. We all had a great experience at The Kids World and recommend to all parents.

Monica and David Powell

Our children (various ages) have been attending A Kid's World (AKW) for over 15 YEARS!! When I was pregnant with my oldest, my husband and I spontaneously "popped-in" to visit 11 other daycares in a 17-mile radius before choosing AKW. The ownership and staff provide a wonderfully-rich educational environment, that mixes in fun with Christian-themed values, all while keeping children's safety a top priority. I know AKW has had a few incidents that led to some serious injuries (over the span of 15 YEARS mind you...far less than many other facilities), the daycare's swift response to rectify the incidents should be commended. Most of these involved "new" staff members, who although qualified, did not adhere to the strict safety guidelines set by the daycare, and were promptly dismissed from the facility following the incidents. I have witnessed firsthand AKW's willingness and eagerness to adapt to the changing needs of both children and parents, which have included providing excellent accommodations for children with allergies, and even those with severe physical or mental disabilities. Highly recommend!

Caitlin Bray

There are people that comment that children come home with unexplained bruises, this is no longer an issue if it even ever was. They file incident reports in which the parent signs after they are given the run down of exactly what happened. The teachers are NEVER on their phones and I’ve come at all hours of the day every day they’re open so false on that one. And all the teachers try to calm crying kids when they can (there is a 9/1 child teacher ratio and with toddlers you can understand the difficulty giving tons of attention to just one child). I’ve never walked in to pick up my daughter and gotten the “I don’t know” response as to where my daughter is. Heck, teachers who don’t have my kid in their class know where she is, so false. They also have an app that you can download that gives you real time updates as to what they are, their lesson for the day, how they’re doing on diapers, and even when they are checked in and out. There’s a key pad that you create a code for, and anyone else you authorize to pick up your child so you can’t even get in without preauthorization. They will also store specialty food items for you if your child has lactose intolerance for example. And they always let you know about events that cost money, and have an opt out sheet if you don’t want your child to participate. I honestly don’t know what people are complaining about. Giving a 1 star review for a mystery bruise on a TODDLER is hardly justifiable, they have play structures the child could have bumped their arm when the teacher was addressing another child. As for the missing shoe (as is common with children as shocking as that is) the daycare has always returned clothing items to me in a very timely matter if something was lost. Again great place, please ignore the low ratings they’re being dramatic. Wonderful staff, diverse lesson plans, very healthy food, and plenty of physical activity to get them moving. Come check them out they give tours! Infant to 5 years if I’m not mistaking.

My daughter started Pre-K here in August and I can tell she absolutely loves it. I adore everyone that works here and definitely would recommend this place.

Gina Cowart

The teachers and staff always help answer any questions we have ! The staff is always friendly and has continued to ensure us we are leaving our daughter in great hands . The provide meal plans and have helped my daughter devolve life skills at such an early age!

Susanne Bell

My 10 month old just started here on Monday. I must say I am very pleased with the center, their rules, the way they follow the rules & most importantly, the way they have treated myself & my daughter. She has always stayed with my parents while I worked, but the staff here have made her transition to daycare as smooth as it could possibly be. They love on her, spend extra time with her when she needs it, they play with her & it truly touches my heart as a mother when I see her receive a hug for no reason or a sweet kiss on the forehead. I know my daughter feels loved & safe there & that means the world to me. I also LOVE the fact that I can watch her all day with their WatchMeGrow cameras installed in every room. Those really put my mind & heart at ease while I'm at work.

S. Lane

We first became part of the A Kids World family in 2009 when we enrolled our two oldest children. 10 years later, our youngest is still experiencing all of the excellent care and fun and educational activities that A Kids World offers. Not only are the care and activities exceptional - but the amazing staff is truly what makes A Kids World the absolute best place for children and families! We have made so many lifetime friends through our connection to A Kids World. The staff are kind and caring and constantly go above and beyond to help - whether in big ways or small ways. We simply cannot say enough about the quality of each staff member that we have had the pleasure to know. We always feel confident that are children are safe, well taken care of - and most importantly, LOVED! Thank you, A Kids World, for a decade of happy memories. We love you!

Andrea Powers

PRICES ARE AMAZING!!!! My two daughters have been attending this day care facility since 2016 they are very supportive and helpful also teach my girls a ton of things that I wouldn't have the time to teach them on my own there very understanding and motherly as far as taking care of the girls. My girls love to field trips during the summer as they are there all day long . During school year there just there for after school the teachers are amazing and do their best to spark interest in my girls I would highly recommend and have done so to 3 other individuals to have their children attend this facility.

Laura Roettger

I love A Kids World because they love my child. He is accepted and provided with every opportunity to be successful despite his special needs!

Jessica Allgood

My daughter has gone to a Kids World since she was only a few months old and I trust them whole heartedly to take care of my child the same way I would.

Assistant MCA

We have used many daycares over the last 7 years, and AKW is by far our favorite. They truly teach the kids! Garden club, my girls love! They grow and eat their fruits and veggies which is just so cool. My girls love going there, the entire staff is great. Their communication is like no other, I love that you can pay online. I just can't say enough great things!

Britney Garland

My daughter started out at a daycare in Loganville when she was about 1 1/2 and she was there for a couple months and every day she would get out of the car to go into the daycare, as soon as we stepped foot in the front door she would start screaming, she would get to her classroom and she would lay in the floor, bang her head on the floor, kick her feet and scream at the top of her longs for roughly 3 hours, every single day! I ended up taking her out of that daycare and letting her go to my mother-in-law’s house every day for a couple months when I decided I needed to put her back in daycare so I struggled for a while with this decision and finally decided to try out AKW and let me tell you; BEST DECISION I’VE EVER MADE! My girl is in the 2K room with Ms. Britney, Ms. Rocky and Ms. Sam and my baby LOVES coming every am. She knows her routine and she rarely ever cries when I leave now usually only when she’s sick. I am going to be so sad when that day comes when she has to switch rooms because these three are my absolute favorite!

Jessica Addison

Teachers are loving and well mannered. I am grateful how much my kids love it and relationships they have with the teachers who have taught them so much!

Minion Mom

One of the best, so glad they take care of my children like I would and the pricing is awesome

Kimberly Ann

My children have gone to this center since they are infants and is the only place I’ve ever felt comfortable taking them. My children have also learned so much from AKW’s Pre-K program. Very thankful for AKW for giving this Mama peace of mind that my babies are taken care of while I’m at work.

Filloreta P Svarqa

Great staff, my daughters pre-k teachers are great and super friendly! My daughters seems to love it.

This is the only childcare center where my son has been excepted and loved. They have been so great with his special needs and supportive of our struggles.

Marisol Davila Carreon

Starting your kids at any daycare or school is always a stressful situation. You never know how they will take it. And it’s always worse when they cry about it. My son started this week and the first day I picked him up I as relieved when he told me he had so much fun! This Friday he got picked up from regular school for being sick and the thing he was concerned about was missing going to A kids world! This makes me happy inside.

Pamela Cedars

My kids really enjoy going every day to see their friends and teacher

Marencia Smith

This is a really good day care my lil brother go here

Christy L Daws

This place requires the teachers to come into work even if the have a contagious sickness! If they don't, they are threatened of losing their job! I know because my daughter was on the receiving end of this! Children are often changed on the bathroom floor.. can you say gross!!! I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy! If you have a child there.. pop in for a surprise visit if you don't believe me!

Shannon Smith Houk

I LOVE this day care! My son is happy and learning and safe everyday.

Brittany LeVert George

My son attends the PreK program at AKW. He has never been to a daycare/center ever before and AKW made that transition easy not only for him, but me too. I love that they have a camera system app that allows you to check in on your child at any given time of the day. That made me feel more at ease but you will see that you don’t even use it as much as you thought you would because your child will love it here! My child is excited to get up and go to school every single day! They have a personal chef who prepares every meal for the children and it is top notch healthy meals and snacks. My son eats things at school that he wouldn’t even try at home! Im so glad we chose AKW for PreK this year. AKW has been wonderful for us!

Becky Ellis Wilson

Danny loves it here and he's learning so much even though he's only been here 4 days now

Britney Baker

I switched my two-year-old from a daycare that she was miserable at and cried every single day for roughly 3 hours because she hated it so bad so I pulled her out, switched to AKW and now she loves coming to school to see her friends and teachers. She has her routine down and every morning she comes in and she knows exactly what to do she’s not ever sad when I leave anymore unless she’s sick... The fact we have access to cameras no matter where they are is such a great feeling knowing we can check on our babies at any time of day. Ms. Britney, Ms. Rocky and Ms. Sam are our absolute favorites!!

I can't begin to say enough about this school, my daughter has attended PreK and she is now in the summer transition program. The teachers have always gone out of their way to make her feel special and to especially love learning. I highly recommend this school to any parent who has to use a daycare and if you have a child that will be entering PreK, defiantly check out A Kid's World!!! We love the staff and the school.
