This is by far the most greatest, welcoming, loving and extremely creative setting in the area! Our hearts simply melted when we walked through the door. We appreciate Julie and Larry and all their lovely staff at Babes. The classrooms are perfectly set up for education and creativity. We appreciate them serving a PBIS program, home made lunches and the wild life backyard with their daily adventures. I love getting my child's art and school work knowing how much they learn and do there. Kids are always happy and we feel safe and glad knowing where they go ... Their second home. We always recommend this wonderful center!

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

We are very thankful for the loving and accepting environment that the center provides for our three young children. We have had children in every classroom and one has been through the entire center from infancy to EC4T. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We truly feel comfortable leaving our children in their care for the day!

Highly recommend this place! My daughter loves going there and it has a great family atmosphere. Mu daughter has unique dietary concerns with huge consequences if a strict diet is not followed. Julie and the other teachers are wonderful with it. I never have to worry.
