My daughter learns so much here. At 2.5 years she can already recognize sight words, colors, numbers, shapes, and weather. She is also very well cared for and loved. Her teachers are kind and patient and support the students in reaching their potential even at this young age. I also find them easy to talk to as a mother. I’d not hesitate to send my children to this daycare.

There was no curriculum for my children, but she assisted with homework with the oldest one. The other children were not school age, but she assisted with potty training. This provider is awesome!! You'd be lucky to have her care for your children while you are at work!

My 2 year old son attends this daycare and he loves it! Often times he doesn't want to leave at the end of the day. The providers here are very caring and dedicated to all of the children and their needs. My son started at 18 months and has come a long way with his speech and socialization!

My 2 year child is extremely happy and safe at this daycare. She has learned a tremendous amount of educational tasks in only 6 months of attendance. I am impressed with the quality of child care from this center and the staff seems to REALLY enjoy interacting and educating children.

This daycare provides a loving and caring learning environment for my toddler. The owner and her staff treat and care for my little one as if he were their own. This provider always addresses any concerns I may have about my little one. She sends weekly pictures and video of my little one's progress. This provider and her staff are easy to communicate with and the daycare is always clean. I highly recommend this daycare!

I was so nervous as my daughter is our first child but I couldn't be happier with our decision. This provider makes our daughter feel at home and I can tell when my daughter wants to continue playing instead of being picked up. I highly reccomend this daycare

My daughter has gone to this daycare for about a year now. She absolutely loves it! She comes home with a funny story every day and she has made many friends. This provider is very organized and the layout of the child care area is beautiful. She always keeps me informed on what my daughter is doing well and what she needs to improve on. I'm glad I made the decision to send my child here.
