The staff is fantastic! We know our baby is safe and well cared for at First Stop Kids. Scott has done a fantastic job redoing the building while still keeping the essence of a warm and nurturing daycare. The hours are perfect. The fact that it is opened until 7pm has been a blessing for our work schedules. Thank you all, and keep up the great work!

First Stop Kids has been amazing. It was the first day care we interviewed and got a really great feeling from the owner, Scott. It is the perfect location for my husband and I since we commute and the time (7am-7pm) really works perfect for our schedule. The staff is amazing and welcoming. Our son comes home happy everyday. We know he is in good hands while we are at work.

First Stop Kids is a wonderful Center. My son has been attending this center for 3 and a half years. The staff care about the kids and are very communicative with the parents.

The director is very innovative and extremely accessible. He has made countless changes since he took over less than 2 years ago. I can't recommend them enough!

My 2 year old loves it here. I enrolled him 2 months ago and I can tell he loves seeing his friends and the teachers. His teachers are so great with him, as long as the weather is permitting, they play outside, do story time, arts and crafts, they have a music teacher come (who my son is in love with) And I love the app they have that the teachers can send you updates on their meals, bathroom time, photos of what your child is doing etc. The school is safe and the administrator is always keeping the parents informed about different events and things going on at the school. Really feels like family, I'm truly so happy I found this place. They take the best care of my son. Thank you Rose Garden!

We've been through the transition from the previous owner to the new owner, Scott, and we commend him for the smooth transition and continual updates throughout the process that did not at all disrupt my daughter's schedule. Scott is a highly professional and thoughtful owner and we can't say enough nice things about him. He has transformed and updated the interiors to make it a bright and cheerful learning environment and the kids seem to enjoy it immensely...I'm sure all the parents do too!

Owner, Scott, took over in 2017 and he immediately won us over with personal attention and commitment to executing significant improvements to the learning center -- everything from complete interior renovation to adjusting age range of some rooms to create optimal learning environments for children of similar age/development. He and the wonderful, caring staff provide our daughter a welcome and stimulating environment. She is safe, socializing, learning, and happy. We are grateful to Rosegarden!
