I would recommend this daycare. I could not be any happier with my decision to send my son to this daycare. My son immediately liked the staff and after 2 years of attending he is still excited about going to school every day. He just turned 4 and knows how to count, spell, do addition and he comes home every day with something new he has learned. I am impressed with his teachers and very proud of his ability to learn things so quickly. He knows how to share and he interacts with other children very well.
They may not have an outside play area but when the weather is nice they take the kids on adventure walks to teach them about their surroundings and occasionally take them to the playground. My son is very happy there, he has never cried about going to school. Dropping him off to in the morning and knowing my child is safe and being cared for makes my days at work so much easier. I owe the entire staff a huge Thank you because all of them are friendly and a great influence for my son. You are doing a great job helping me raise and teach my son how to be the best young man he can be.
