I love the south building and staff. They’re all so amazing and all three of my kids enjoy going everyday to the center.
It's a second home to my kid(s). It feels safe, friendly, and they accommodate our needs. I also appreciate since they are in care for so long each day I can visit any time, there is a web camera service, as well as frequent photos and messages across the app.
Great school! Location is great! The director and Assistant director are friendly eager to answer any questions we have. The interaction between teachers and managers is wonderful. They all seem to have respect for themselves and enjoy where they work. It makes me feel at peace to know that my children are in a happy environment
