Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
My babies main teacher, Francis, always seems happy and excited to receive my child in the morning. You can tell her connection to the babies in that they all fuss when she leaves the room and wait for her return. My boy greets her with a huge smile every morning and does not fuss at all to be handed off to her, this gives me the confidence to know my baby is being well cared for.
Adrianna is very warm and sincere. My daughter likes her teachers and likes the activities provided.
I am so thrilled with the teachers. I feel they have made a connection with my kids and it's the best feeling. I know my children are well cared for and are safe. They keep me posted throughout the day on my children's activities. I definitely recommend this facility!!
