decent – my children are happy and I have no complaints. its not a jaw dropping center but it is sanitary and affordable. thats all I need.
I'm pleased. – Although there have been some problems with the limit of kids and so on, I believe that has been corrected. My child has been matriculated here for over two years and I have no complaints thus far. I recommend this place as I have not had a problem with the day care and my son seems happy where he is.
Happy Parent – My kids are matriculated in this day care and I was not aware of such problems mygirlskeeper mentioned. I've always been treated well by the current managers and my kids love the place. I wouldn't take them out for anything.
Parents be careful !!! - Not recommended for good reasons – My child recently went to this school and was asked by daycare management to leave and obtain childcare somewhere else. What aparently happened and after reading some of the comments on this page was this daycare had more kids than the legal amount allowed.
Teh process of being asked to leave was a very painfull process. The owners were very unprofessional in the process and families were asked to leave randomely without any apparent selection process.
After finding out what happend with the families and children department, I am glad we are not a part of this daycare anymore.
I would not recommend this center to anyone under this current management. My kids saftey and wellbeing is not worth the risk.
Parents Beware and be informed with facts – I am a real parent concerned for the children of families that might NOT be getting the real facts regarding this daycare and end up placing their children at risk. This daycare has a blattened disregard for Department of Children and Families (DCF) standards. It was cited on two different occasions in 1/2010 and 2/2010 for exceeding their licenses capacity operating in a building that was not licensed by DCF. Don’t believe me, read the public records published by DCF at the following link:

What’s important to note is that this center didn’t exceed their licenses capacity by a minor 1 or 2 children. Amazing Learning Academy was 14 children over their license capacity knowingly operating in a building that was not licensed by DCF. Not only were they recently cited for license capacity issues, they were cited for lack of supervision of children on multiple counts, lack of proper hand washing by staff , and more.
The above link is information on one inspection. There are many more on the main page of this site that have the facts.
I thought it would be helpful to share some of these facts I found when researching this daycare for my children. I also noticed none of the prior reviews mentioned these important facts. I don’t agree with comments below that this is one of the better centers in the area. I found a few other centers in the area that I would recommend much more over this one.
Excellent Provider – I work for the Florida Department of Children and Families and inspected Amazing Learning Academy or JMD Loving, as it was known at the time, during the process of license accreditation under the new owners. This facility has been improved substantially and receives outstanding evaluations each year from our inspectors. It is definitely one of the best in the area.
Please note: Day care centers receive constant inspections and must be maintained clean and safe. If a center fails to provide a sanitary environment, its license is revoked. Therefore and by my personal account, everything is kept spotless and sanitation is advocated at Amazing. If at any time you are concerned with this when placing your child in a day care center, ask the administration for the license and call our department at 1-866-762-223 for an evaluation of the institution.
If you are a dcf inspector, perhaps it is a conflict of interest for you to comment on a school.
DCF inspections should speak for themselves, shouldn't they? The inspections I viewed on dcf's website for Amazing Learning Academy in North Miami are not very favorable.
Best Center I've Encountered – My kids love going here every day. Amazing Learning Academy will truly amaze you. The one in Hialeah is even better, check these centers out!
Good place – This place is not dirty. In fact, the floors are mopped and disinfected each day. The place also gets a comprehensive clean each weekend and constantly receives positive reviews from health inspectors. The instructors are well trained in child care and teaching and the owner is an educated and friendly woman. I will agree that both owners worked hard on this place and it shows. The kids couldn't be happier!
trouble – I agree with the inspections. the place needs work. big time. I have no idea what matriculated even means. con artists is what they are.
Attentive staff and fun environment for kids. – I personally know the owners of this place and contrary to what jose19 audaciously stated, the institution has received significant amount of work. The previous owners were an elderly woman and her daughters. After the woman died of cancer, her daughters put the place up for sale and the current owners took the opportunity. When they purchased the buildings they were roach infested, unpainted, and filthy. In 3 years, the current owners have painted the outsides, replaced the roofing, cleaned and remodeled the inside (walls replaced, new furniture bought, everything painted, decorations added, technology installed), and hired competent instructors for the VPK classes they initiated. In short, thousands of dollars have been invested in Amazing Learning Academy with more still to be spent. The care of the children has also been improved significantly. Both owners are well educated and are experts in the treatment of kids. This is reflected in the feedback they receive from parents, health inspectors, and everyone who steps foot inside their institution. As a parent and witness to what I've mentioned, I strongly recommend Amazing Learning Academy to any parent who is looking for great service and a stimulating environment for their children.
