I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Amazing staff that is super attentive, caring and engaging with the children. We do not live close, but we make it work, as their curriculum starts in the infant program and goes till the child starts kindergarten. Cannot say enough about this place.

Can't say enough about how Close to Home has been such a great influence in both my daughters lives. My oldest (13) has gone there since she was 5 & loves it there, and is kept active no matter what age. So it was w/ no question that I enrolled my youngest(2) as well.She would actually fight me or hide from me so she didn't have to leave because she liked it so much! LOL They have good structure by keeping the kids on a consistent schedule that includes all kinds of activities & learning skills. I'm going back to work again,and my kids are happy to go back to Close To Home. Also you'll have peace of mind by being able to simply acsess their webpage & watch cameras located in all classrooms,in case you want to check in & see what they are up to. My #1 choice for dayare.
