I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son has been going here for 2yrs now. Hes 4 years old now. He used to go to a corporate daycare, how awful.
With Arthouse and Ms. Heather, he has been well taken care of, has had so much fun, is learning faster than he ever has before.
Super low student to teacher ratios. There's a mix of ages sometimes in the summer. Ages 2-5 sometimes. That's when my son learned the most. Because he's learning from the "big kids."
They take field trips, do art projects, sing songs for their little holiday special, etc.
I love this place so much. I really don't want to leave it but we moved half an hour away, been traveling the distance for his school and my work.
But sometimes you have to change direction.
Highly reccomend. Love this place so much.

I am an employee

Heather, the owner, does not pay her employees. The teachers are great, but take your kids and money elsewhere.

FYI, 3 employees just left on the same day. The owner decided not to pay employees after they worked hard and put in quality time to help and be there for the children.
