Reviewed by Luna 5/5 stars
I highly recommend this school and day care. I know when I drop my son off, that he is in great hands. He receives healthy home cooked meals, a tailored bilingual education, exercise and fresh. When we're home, he will often tell me that he misses/loves his teachers and school and I know the feeling is mutual. Martina sends me adorable pictures and updates throughout the day which I deeply appreciate. Alex is very warm and helped my son a lot in getting used to going to school for the first few weeks. I love absolutely everything about this school.
