I have used this provider for less than 6 months

My 3yr old goes to this enrichment center and it's absolutely fabulous! The teachers are passionate, the communication is perfect for those who want to know what's going on. If I could give 100 recommendations I would ! Not only is it an affordable school for our young ones it meets the standards to exactly what the name is! Constantly challenging kids minds is exactly what we need. So if you're in the area and looking for not only child care but an academic child care stop by!
