The transportation is such an added bonus! The facility is so nice and very spacious. The outdoor play area is safe and secure with lots of different activities for the children. Although the center is new, the staff is knowledgeable, experienced and caring. I'm so glad my child will be learning before he heads off to Pre-K! Thanks!
