Ya tu sabes Jul 19, 2017
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Actually should receive several negative stars. First off the center has been confirmed by the health and licensing board to have extremely high levels of lead in the water system inside daycare.
Extremely high turn over rate of employees which means you never know exactly who is watching your kids.
Several previous employees have stated the director of this location will physically punish your children. Multiple code violations this year and numerous ones in the several years I have allowed my kids to go here. Currently shopping for new child care as this place is unsafe and very unprofessional.
