I personally have nothing but good things to say about this facility. All of the staff members are very nice and everytime I drop my son off whether its early in the morning or a later they are always very involved with the children. They have been helping me potty train a very stubborn little boy and have been so great about it. He is doing so much better since switching to this center. It is also very clean and organized. He loves it there. I would highly recommend this day care. :)
