I love the experience we have had at this school. Olivia and Nicole are amazing administrators. They greet us with a smile, help on tough transition mornings. And the teachers love my child. They are quick to share stories about his day and his progress. And I always feel like they’re interested in my family. Couldn't be happier.

We are very happy with the entire staff and are continually amazed by what our child is learning and his interactions with his wonderful teachers.
Verified Shopper
Overall, I am very impressed and feel good about leaving my 3 month old every day. I was at ease from the beginning when he started attending a month ago and he loves his teachers and friends already! He gets excited when we arrive each day and they send tons of updates via the app, which my husband and I love getting throughout the day! I have already recommended this facility to our neighbors and
it’s their top choice so far for their baby due in Feb. Everyone is friendly and you can tell that the staff get along and provide a fun and nurturing environment for all of the children, especially the infants.
