This drop in center came under new ownership last year and my children are so much happier with the new staff. My kids have been coming to Green Kids every weekend for three years and really didn’t look forward to going and as a mother I felt terrible having to drop them off at a place they didn’t like but I had no choice as my job is right across the street and it was my only option. When the new owners took over and hired all new staff my kids immediately felt a difference and actually look forward to going every weekend. Everyone there is so friendly and professional and they are super interactive with the children. It is no longer just a place for them to go out of desperation but now it is a place where they learn and grow as individuals and always come home with details of all of the projects and activities they did for the day. I am so grateful for the new owners and staff. They truly have a love for all the children and it shows.

I have a 4yr old and a 6yr old who absolutely LOVE it when they find out they get to go to the Green Kids Drop In Center. When it’s time for me to pick them up there is always an inevitable melt down and my youngest, Jackson asks me to leave and come back later. 😂 I really do feel like the staff genuinely cares about both of my children and are excited to see them when I drop them off. I own my own business and last min meetings pop up quite often. I am grateful that I have found a place that I feel comfortable and safe taking my children. This location is clean and has a really cool play area and slide.

It is with great honor and excitement to write this review for GK! I have been using GK for over EIGHT YEARS and wow what a life saver! I had never heard of the drop-in day care concept before but once I did, it became an absolute necessity. Whether you're a busy overworked parent who finally needs a break with alone time, or you need work-related child care, this is the place to be! No appts, no contracts, and open seven days a week (till 9 on weekdays and 11 on weekends!). The providers/teachers are friendly, attentive, fun, and energetic. You go MIA for a little while due to busy schedules and when you return, at least one person in there immediately recognizes your child's face and greets them as if the were just there yesterday and not gone for awhile. They have themed parties outside of the regular care set up to make things even more fun for the kids. They now have TONS on packages, memberships, discounts, and options to make it affordable and flexible for numerous types of family set-ups/needs. They often run specials and sometimes have payment plans on the large packages. The toys, games, and jungle gym area are great (and recently renovated). I can't believe it's been 8 years and we're still not gonna quit!! If they ever did a commercial, my son and I would love to be in it! :0 But in the meantime, I tell people about it ALL the time...so many who never heard of this concept or this place. THANKS GREENKIDS!!

Today was my son’s first visit and he loved it! As a parent I was super nervous to drop my child off to an unfamiliar place. However, it is very safe, secure, and kid friendly. He had fun and now I feel like I can take care of errands when needed.🙂

My son absolutely loved his visit! We can't drive past without him asking to go again. Affordable with great hours, you can drop in any time to drop off your kids and get some time to yourself. Staff is friendly and engaging with the kids. Definitely would recommend to everyone!

I’ve been sending my kids(2-7yrs old) here for the last year when I need to go to my weekly appointments. Clean environment and the staff is genuinely kind. My girl loves Mrs. Suzy! I worry easy, but this place had me feeling secure after the first visit. Also, my 6yr old autistic child comes when they are not in school and always leaves in a happy demeanor.....which is a big deal for us. Recommend getting a package deal if you plan to use it often so you can pay a lower hourly rate.

Have always enjoyed green kids. I just don’t like that they play a movie during the day on the weekends. My son is an only child and hasn’t socialized much during quarantine so when Green Kids opened, I thought I’d take him so he could finally have some interaction with other kids. Well when I picked him up, he said they played a movie and he wasn’t allowed to play or make noise because it was quiet time. He was pretty upset that he didn’t get to play or interact with kids. I just don’t see why a drop in center would require kids to be quiet when it’s a place where they normally play. I think movies should be an event thing that parents sign up for and not a requirement. Some parents do drop their kid off to squeeze in some time to interact with others especially children who do not have siblings. But I do like green kids. They are friendly and place is clean, I feel safe dropping off my kid. Was just kind of bummed that I paid for my son to sit still and watch a movie.
