Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
They have always been so welcoming and answer all my questions. The director calls my daughter by her name every time we see her and asks her how her day was.

This school is amazing. My child went from being the only child in a at home daycare to being social and rambunctious making tons of friends. The curriculum is awesome and he shares new songs or games with us. It's a great place.
