I love this daycare! I was looking for a smaller center when I returned to work after working from home during COVID for my almost 1 year old and found this gem. After 5 months of being there I am extremely pleased. They are kind, caring, and I can tell they know my child very well. They do so many fun and educational activities, even for the babies. I can see all the things my little is learning at home. What a great childcare center!

This daycare is by far the BEST daycare I've had my children in. They get upset when they have to leave because they love all their teachers and friends so much! They're constantly learning and I absolutely love that they offer sports! Everything they eat is healthy which is definitely another pro. Everyone there is also very helpful and caring. I absolutely wouldn't trade this daycare for any other. I love everyone there!

Our 3 year old started going to the center in August of this year and the progress in her advancement is amazing. She has learned so much and the teachers geniunely care about each child. I feel extremely blessed to have her part of this center. We love our previous daycare provider and this has been an easy transition for both her and us. She does arts and crafts, tries different foods and has a fun learning  environment. She comes home singing songs, using new wordsand new crafts to show off. I highly recommend this center !
