I am a first time mom and my daughter is 5.5 months. We are so lucky to have Sttawberries as it's steps from my husband's work. She attends the infant room twice a week and loves it! I work full time and it's so sad to not be able to stay home with my daughter, but Strawberries uses Brightweel and I get lots of pictures and updates throughout the day. The business is brand new and very clean. All classrooms are staffed by teaching professionals. Communication is clear and consistent. Pricing is a dream compared to our previous center, which cost a mortgage payment per month for two days a week. We look forward to having our daughter grow in Sttawberries in the years to come!
