I love this program and the staff are so kind and professional! They are also greet my family when we arrive and talk with us when we leave. There are very caring and loving teachers here and my son enjoys coming to school every day. The only thing that would be helpful is to know when pictures are coming to the school and to know how much my son ate for meals. He is such a picky eater that I would
love to know an approximate amount of food he ate
