I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Don't ever bring your children to this place. They provide horrible service to parents. Receptionist is rude. My daughter comes home saying she's scared to go to the bathroom due to holes and leaks in the bathroom. The owner is NASTY! She lies about services that she provides. The children do not work under a lesson plan. My son said the boss makes them watch movies all day. I've asked teachers why my child doesn't not come home with anything. They said the can't get any supplies to do activities. I removed my children out of this daycare due to unprofessionalism and untrained staff. Someone should look into this place it's a complete JOKE!

My two kids have been here for a year and we've had no complaints. They kids are NOT left unsupervised. They offer deep discounts to parent needing assistance, and offer a variety of other partnerships that enrich your child's experience. They have a partner ship with a ballet company and a Karate school as an example. They teach strong character building skills and have some bilingual staff members for families that do not necessarily speak english as their 1st language.
