I had to pull my son from this daycare due to a teacher verbally abusing my son, their lack of care, little to no supervision of children, no communication when VERY serious things happen, things that by law they are required to notify the parent of and the director miscalculating tuition trying to get more and more money out of the parents here. Due to all of these things there will be an investigation into this daycare and I have had to get an attorney for this matter. Definately would look for ANYWHERE else. I would never recommend a childcare facility that endangers children.

Update: I notified them that my sons last day would be the 23rd because I could not find other care until then. I also informed them that I would be reporting all of the complaints to the city and Whizz Kids then emailed me that " it is my decision that effective immediately, you are no longer clients of Northgate Whizz Kids Academy, Ltd." Also when I told the owner that I would be getting an attorney and would be writing reviews of our experience she wrote me that "I feel your energy would be better spent finding your son a center that is equipped to deal with children who have special needs." My son is so far from special needs that her comment is laughable yet immature and insulting. My son was ahead of everyone in there school because they refuse to teach the children any valuable curriculum. But again shows that when you stand up to someone for their inability to provide care for children they attack you and insult your child. I have all of the emails that I would be happy to share if you would like to know more information. Just contact me on here.

Whizz Kids is a wonderful chilcare facility staffed by loving, patient, and happy teachers. My daughter has been there almost two years now and loves it. The facility is clean and the cirriculum and appropriate.

Communication regarding staff turnover and other issues is not always the best, but the teachers are always open and available for questions.

Our son has attended Northgate Whizz Kids for almost 3 years. We highly recommend the staff and the facility.

The school has provided a fertile environment for our son to grow physically, emotionally and mentally in a nurturing environment, and we are given plenty of one-on-one balanced feedback on a day to day basis on all aspects of his development.

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities and also weigh in on how activities are planned.

Children are taught to communicate effectively, for example, to express anger or anxiety in appropriate ways. Teachers work with parents when issues arise, to coordinate how things are handled at home as well as at the center. We appreciate these efforts to create create consistency in teaching children at this critical age.

As we prepare for kindergarten, we hope that our continuing school experiences are as positive as our time with Whizz Kids.

Cons: Unprofessional director and staff, verbally abusing children

My daughter loves going to "school" at Whizz Kids. The teaching are friendly, engaging and wonderful with her. There has been some turnover in her room but it seems that the person they found to replace the last wonderful teacher is just as great. They all seem really dedicated to making sure the kids are safe, happy and educated during their day.
