We feel very comfortable with having our children at this school. We have come to know the staff very well, and the teachers treat our children as if they are their own. There is nothing more comforting than seeing the teachers embrace our children in a big hug as we drop them off each day.

I love the teachers and program. Everyone is always so friendly and my son adores Miss Tara, Miss Daniela and Miss Maria. He never leaves without giving hugs. I just know that he is safe and “at home” here.
