Joanna Davis - “The hours are fantastic and that I know that my child is safe whether I have to drop her off early or leave her a little bit later. All of the teachers are very involved and know my daughter by name. They are kind and help her to remember things when I pick her up as we are both very forgetful. My daughter had never been in daycare before but I had worked at one previously. I am very impressed by the standards that they have with their staff, the classrooms, and the curriculum. The socialization is awesome and my daughter is constantly encouraged to grow. We love Brainy Kids Place!”
Lacie and Paul Watson - “Brainy Kids Place is by far the best daycare center my child/children have ever attended. Each of my children have attended other public daycares in town as well as private home daycares. The staff was unfriendly, uncaring and uninvolved in caring for my children. My children attended one particular daycare for over 5 years and I never met the owner. They let the children run wild and there was no discipline or structure. Brainy Kids Place is the exact opposite. The staff is full of caring and loving individuals. The owner is involved and has made Brainy Kids Place a safe, fun and structured environment. Chelsea and her staff come up with fun and creative ideas and field trips for the kids. The tuition is great considering all of the activities for this kids. Rarely does a parent have to come out of pocket for additional expenses. I pulled my daughter out of daycare once and re-enrolled her because we missed the structure and the staff. I am so grateful for Brainy Kids Place. I feel comfortable leaving my child there and know the staff will love her and take care of her like their very own.”
Michelle Munivez - “I initially choose Brainy Kids Place for its location and convenience. I was very skeptical about putting my daughters back into daycare due to the fact that we were fairly new to the area. When I initially went in for a tour and to get information, such as what services were offered and the cost, I was greeted with open arms as if I had known them for years. That alone gave me a good feeling about Brainy Kids Place. My daughters love all their peers and teachers. I love the atmosphere that Brainy Kids Place has to offer our children. I like how the facility and classrooms are always clean. I really liked how during the summer the kids were taken out on multiple field trips instead of having to be stuck indoors for the whole summer. Brainy Kids Place staff is very good with communicating with parents. I would recommend Brainy Kids Place to any parent who seeking a good child care facility for their child.”
We take pride in keeping our school age students engaged during the school year and summer too! We plan activities that include crafts, games, music, and science experiments. We know that your child has had a full day at school, but when they come to Brainy Kids Place, we offer them enrichment, not TV!
The Before & After School child care program at Brainy Kids Place fills in the gaps in your child’s day. We provide a secure, caring, and stimulating place for your child during times when the child is not in school and parents are unable to be home. This may be in the morning before school starts, in the afternoon after the school day ends, or on school holidays and days off.
Each morning, our staff will put your child safely on their bus at our facility (please see below for details on transportation arrangements). Prior to leaving for school, your child will have breakfast and the opportunity for activities.
The after school portion of our program starts with an energizing afternoon snack as children arrive. We then have science, arts & crafts time, and sports or large group games either outside or in the gymnasium. Our staff will also assist your child with homework each day. As educators, it is our goal at Brainy Kids Place to provide the highest quality care for your child in a comfortable and caring atmosphere. In the classroom, we strive to encourage the children to build a team-like bond. Many of our activities are group oriented to promote unity among the children. Working together triggers an important closeness, which allows the children to bond and grow as friends.
After breakfast, BKP Schoolers quickly become engaged in science, art, or engineering activities. There is no time for TV or video games here. We make sure they get all the physical exercise they need by getting ample opportunities to go outside and run, jump, play, and even sidewalk chalk outside. After lunch, we give them a rest period and then it’s back to engaging activities that are split between teacher-led activities and free choice activities. During the summer months, we have a full-scale summer program that is full of activities centered around a theme. For details please see our Summer Camp page.
Santa Fe ISD provides busing to our facility to and from RJ Wollom Elementary and Kuback Elementary.
