Caterpillar Kids Daycare

5.0

My son (15m) is lucky enough to go to CKD. I cannot say enough good things about them. They are so warm and loving. My son eats wonderful meals and gets plenty of time outside. This is my first child and I was very nervous to put him in daycare, but I feel like I struck gold.
