My daughter been going to this leaning center for some time now and I can honestly say I'm glad I decided to go with this leaning center. My daughter look forward to going to school, she's actually happy to be around the staff and the other kids. A big thing for me was that my daughter did not like to share! My daughter come home one day and was sharing that was a big thing for me . That let me know the stuff is doing a great job!The center is clean, the staff is professional And friendly. They have great meals for the kids . They actually do things with the kids , go on trips, take walks, story time and more . The owner is awesome!! She understanding and she will work with you. I'm glad I decided to go with this daycare.

My child has been coming here for two years and I am glad I have chosen to enroll with this center. The staff is very nice the owner has a masters in early education and does a great job with the curriculum and lesson plans. I am confident that my soon to be kindergarten baby will be ready to start regular school. I have never had an issue with my child being hurt. She was potty trained early and was able to be place in the preschool classroom at this center because she was so advance thanks to the toddler teachers. The owner/director will assist you with any question you may have. You will not be disappointed by enrolling your child here.

Although this facility is clean and provides a good learning experience for children; the customer service here sucks. The owner is a stuck up snob who cares more about money then anything. Her social media pages may make it seem as if she adores the children, however she shows a great deal of favortism to the children of her friends who are enrolled. Most of her staff is a direct reflection of her. They barely speak at all, which they get from their boss; as the only time you will hear her speak is if she is bragging about materialistic things. She charges for every little thing also so be prepared to always come out of pocket. She values the parents who kiss her behind, as oppose to the parents who actually care and participate. Ive donated countless amounts of my daughters clothes, toys, attended trips, helped at events, and even paid for one of the other parents late fees because she didnt have it. But the owner will only thank and acknowledge the parents who bring her food and give her shout outs on social media. My daughter was also recently injured in their care. They took the kids to the park in 39 degree weather and failed to put a hate on my child. This resulted in her getting cut deeply in the back of her head, as they claim she fell off a sliding board. The only staff member who was apologetic was my daughters old teacher who wasnt even there. Her actual pre school teachers said NOTHING and the owner offered up a forced apology. Her excuse was that kids get hurt sometimes. I could say alot about the owner since all her and her staff do is gossip about one another and other parents. If you are big on customer service because you are paying your hard earned money for a service, you may want to reconsider this facility.

By far one of the best preschools in the city. Staff is very professional and shows love and affection to the children and their families. The children learn from trained staff and the latest technologies. The center is clean, bright and colorful. This is a place that you would call a home away from home.
