I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Most providers do this kind of business for the money but mrs. Benjamin truly loves kids it’s obvious. My kids never want to leave and feel very comfortable at her home. She treats my kids like they were her own. What more can you ask for?

Excellent care by a loving, amazing woman! My child went there from age 5 to 13. Florence treats the children with love and respect. It is the best possible care for your child. nothing better to know your child is safe.
