I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The school from this time my boys have started has been great. They are very hands on and patient with the kids. They have apps that keep you informed on what they are doing and pictures. I love it. The best gift any daycare can give a working parent is trust that their kids are cared for. i love it plus they are only two years old and they have already started knowing their colors, letters, and love reading.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I think the school is awesome,every school has issues but the most important part is how you take care of the issues, just from what I have seen the teachers at school 96 are awesome they have a tough job that most parents can't even handle and extremely underpaid but I can say I have enjoyed my son experience at school 96 and look forward more.
