Joy Child Learning Ctr
When my daughter was 2 it was time to move from home care with her grandmother to a daycare for the experience to grow and learn and socialize with other kids. Like most mothers I do not make the decision of choosing child care easily, nothing but the best would do. I found Joy after doing a lot of research and visiting many centers in the area. I knew Joy was the best place by far after my very first visit and there was no other place I would ever consider again. My daughter has loved the center and everyone there since day one, even when it was hard for me to leave her that day, worried it would be difficult for her to adjust, she just waved and said "Bye Mom" then ran off to play. The teachers are all very loving, patient, attentive and absolutely great with the kids. It's very clean and safe and has a fantastic, structured curriculum that doesn't compare to any other daycare I have ever seen. It has been 3 1/2 years now and my daughter is finally starting kindergarten already knowing how to read and write on a first grade level! My husband and I feel very blessed to have found Joy, Ms. Cher and Mr. Mel and all the wonderful teachers who have helped shape my baby girl into such a smart, well mannered and genuinely happy child. Thankfully we live close by and she will attend the local elementary school so she will most likely be staying at Joy until she is too old to go anymore :-)

Toddler House The
My (now 2 year old) son has been attending Toddler House for 6 months now and we just love it. We compared several full-time care facilities prior to selecting, and the difference with the Toddler House is the behavior of the children. When we visited other locations, the children were wild, everywhere, and terrible listeners. At the TH on 34th street, the children are well-behaved and sweet to one another. Often, my son wants to sing happy birthday to the other kids in his class at night because they are friends. The staff are caring and proactive with their communication, they have tried and true advice if an issue comes up (from diaper rash to temper tantrums), but honestly the best thing that happened to our son was his vocabulary. When we dropped him off he was almost 20 months and not talking, despite our nanny working tirelessly with him. After two months being surrounded with the other kiddos, he started speaking clearly. Now, he can easily count to ten, he sings most of his ABCs, and he loves animal noises. They really worked with him, and you can just tell the staff adore him. It's a wonderfully homey environment. If you are looking for the latest and greatest technology and equipment, this isn't the place for you. But if you want caring women to work with your child in small class sizes, this place is great.

Houston Kidz Academy
After my initial good impression of this center, I am unhappy to report that I will no longer be using their services. My son is a Kindergartner and we live a few blocks away. We use Kidz Academy on a day by day basis when HISD is out for holidays. He has been there once, and I was very pleased with the kindness of the owner and her husband. However on 11/25/14 I called in to advise them my son would not be at the academy for 11/26 due to a change in plans. One of the staff members whom answered, only spoke Spanish. I kindly asked to speak to someone who spoke English. She sounded very annoyed that I did not speak Spanish. This was disrespectful and very unprofessional. That was strike one. She handed the phone over to an English speaking employee and as I began to introduce myself, she hung up on me. Strike two. I called back immediately from the same phone and they would not pick up. Striked three. I was forwarded to voicemail, left a voicemail, and it was not returned. My son will not be attending this establishment anymore.

Rainbow and Stars Brighter Stars Academy
I've tried a couple of daycare centers and interviewed about 9 or 10 so as you can see I am somewhat particular about choosing the people I have care for my babies. My children are now 5 and 3 and we have been with Rainbows and Stars for 2 years. I saw on the previous review that they say they are all about money. I can say from personal experience that this is absolutely not true. Mrs. Creeks has gone out of her way to help with our financial situation. My 5 year old is learning to read and doing very well with addition and subtraction. I judge a caregiver by what my children tell me. They are happy and confident to go to school. They love their teachers, Mrs. Wilma, Mr. and Mrs. Creeks. I cannot say enough about this place and the peace I have found in having to be a working mother and place my children in the care of someone else is priceless. They are very reasonably priced especially for the attentive care and education they give. So grateful I found them!

Early Learning Center
We have a two year old daughter. When it came time to put her into daycare, I wasn't sure what to do or where to go. I was worried, scared and anxious all at the same time. The staff at ELC is not only helpful, but eased all of my anxiety by letting me know that my child would be taken care for while I was away at work. Their rates are affordable and their staff is amazing. I get daily reports about how my daughter is doing and her progress has been amazing. I really appreciate all of the support I'm given as well. I wasn't sure about how to potty train my kiddo, but I was given advice and help in order to do so. With ELC help, my daughter hardly had accidents and her training went by quickly. At two years old, she was potty trained 100%. We didn't even have accidents at night which was great! I can't sing the praises of this Child Development center enough. It was a blessing to find them and I'm more than thankful that I did.

Panda Bear Academy 2
My child has attended Panda Bear Academy for 3years now she was the first and only baby at that time. I wouldn't trust any other center or staff with my princess. Miss Hope is heaven sent! Miss Hope treats all the kids as if they were her own, we love Miss Hopey as the kids call her. My daughter ask for Miss Hope on the weekend , what more can you ask for. As far as respect I have never ever witness the staff being rude to the kids or parents. Mr. Jaime and Miss Hope hands down can run the center with eyes closed and not miss a beat. This center cooks hot meals for the kids around the clock, my daughter loves the food, and is very proud to say grace before eating. This center is always clean and the staff always upbeat. Good job keep up the great work. No words can describe how it feels to find THE day care. It's a perfect fit.

Childhood Seasons Learning Academy #1
I am glad that my children attend Childhood Seasons Learning Academy. The facilty is clean, and the staff are friendly. My baby goes there all day, and my older child attends after school. My baby is well taken care of and loved! The teachers are so happy to see her when I drop off in the morning! I liked that they welcomed me calling to check on her the first couple of weeks that she attended. I also appreciate the communication through the caregivers and the daily sheet that is sent home every day that tells me about her day. My older child wants to go to the center & that says a lot to me! I am impressed that they have a degreed teacher working with my child after school that is able to help him with his homework. I am thankful to have peace of mind while I am at work during the day!

Joann's Day Camp
We moved to this area over the summer and defiantly are out of our comfort zone. We choose this daycare because it is small and family orientated. We have a special needs baby and they have done nothing but care for him like he is there own child. There is not one daycare out there that does not have there own faults. I do not believe that any one intended on leaving a child alone. But if you want to get down to it the day care closes at 6pm. Why did the parents wait until 6:45pm to come and get there child. The workers at this daycare would have stayed no matter what but you have to communicate with them. So before anyone passes judgement on the daycare look at the whole story. I would not take my children anywhere else. They have been nothing but kind and accepting of my children from day one.
Tips & Advices
  • Cameras
  • Motion sensors
  • Alarms
  • Smoke, CO2, and flood detectors
  • Flashlights
  • Panic buttons
  • Door and window stoppers
  • Spot lights/floodlights
  • Etched window glass
  • Combination safe
  • reinforced locks
  • Placing signs and sticker for security systems outside home
  • Personal safety items (firearms, stun guns, pepper spray, batons, etc.)
No, it is possible to install a home alarm system yourself. Some systems are specifically designed to be installed by homeowners. These systems are often cheaper and more customizable. However some systems require the expertise of a professional and installation should be left up to them to avoid making any errors. Review the specifications of the system and/or contact the manufacturer if you are unsure about its installation requirements.
  • Easy and inexpensive to install and does not require any drilling or modification of the home.
  • Does not require a landline.
  • Can be taken from one home to another during change of residence.
  • Can be combined with a hardwired system.
  • No need to change any batteries, as with wireless systems
  • No interference from other signals
  • All hardwired systems run on essentially the same technology so products and services from different companies will be compatible with each other.
  • If moving to a home with a hardwired system already installed, you can save money by bypassing installation costs.
  • New security equipment for these systems is less expensive than for wireless systems.
  • Can be combined with a wireless system
  • Hardwired: A system that uses cables to connect all sensors to a central control panel within your home. The cables are usually installed within the walls or floorboards of your home. The control panel then uses your home’s landline connection to call for assistance (police, fire, medic).
  • Wireless: A system which uses wireless technology (wi-fi) to connect all sensors to your home’s central control panel. The panel uses the established network to communicate with the outside for assistance.
  • A combination of hardwired and wireless: Custom systems can be configured to have a home totally hardwired and equipped with wireless outside communication (no landline), or have a totally wireless home and hardwired outside communication.
