My twins have been at Kid Country for almost 2 years now. This is the 2nd daycare they've been to and Kid Country blows their previous daycare out of the water!! ALL teachers there are kind, attentive, helpful, and so nice. I couldn't imagine a better setting for learning and exploring than Kid Country. We love it!!

Kid Country Childcare has been a fantastic daycare. My oldest Daughter attended for 4 years and now my youngest has started. Both girls absolutely love it there. The teachers are absolutely amazing and do such a wonderful job with the kids! Everyone extremely friendly and make you feel very welcome! I would absolutely recommend this daycare to anyone who is looking!!!

Kid Country was highly recommended to us and we fell in love as soon as we visited. Our boys were welcomed with open arms, the kids were so thrilled to have new friends in their class, the staff was immediately kind and welcoming. I was most impressed with the curriculum, though! The boys get excited to go to school each day and we are confident they are getting plenty of attention, love and good care!

I've had my two sons enrolled at Kid Country. He runs into his class in the mornings, and if we have a holiday break for a few days, he starts asking me when he can go "back to school." I don't know what more I could possibly ask/wish for for my boys. I would highly recommend this school for anyone looking for childcare in the Manhattan area, you will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend Kid Country! The teachers are amazing. They have gone above and beyond to help my girls overcome their social anxiety which is no easy feat especially during Covid. My daughters love going to Kid Country and now have the ability to build relationships and make friends. Seeing them thrive both academically and socially has brought me so much joy as a mother. I have Kid Country to thank for that!!

We had a great experience at Kid Country. My kids were there for 3 years and they loved all of their teachers and were always excited to go to school. The director was always so helpful if I ever had questions and was great with communication (especially during covid). We recently moved away and were so sad to leave Kid Country!

My 8 month old grandson has been going to Kid Country for a few months now and he gets so excited when we walk through the door in the morning. Everyone is so nice, helpful and professional. They do so much with them. They keep you very well informed. I would definitely recommend bringing your children here.

Our daughter has attended Kid Country since she was 6 weeks old. The staff all took her in as one of their own. I love that they are play based and that the kids are constantly engaged in activities, working together, and being outdoors! She has thrived outside the program because of what she has learned there.

Peace of Mind. I have dropped my three children off here for the past decade. I had peace of mind every time I dropped them off. This place is more than a "daycare" it truly is an early education center. The teachers here are some of the best I have seen, they work hard and are dedicated. If you are lucky enough to get a spot at this place you will not be disappointed.

Both of my sons attend kid country, they both started at newborns, the staff has made me and my family so comfortable leaving them in their care, they send pictures through out the day, just to let you know how their day is going good. I have never ever thought twice about leaving my babies there! They truly feel like family!
