I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My daughter Coralie moved from Boston to New York a little after the school year started. Ms. St. Joy and her husband welcomed her with open arms. It was more than just a daycare, they quickly became an extension to our family. This made the transition much easier for my daughter. Devoted parents has a professional staff, and the environment is safe and clean. They are very attentive to details, we will miss them next year.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The worst day care ever. I regret having my child attend this school and would never EVER recommend it. The administration gossip on parents and there employees, the owner is ride and comes off unapproachable. The teacher assistants don't speak English so how are you suppose to communicate with child who are there to learn. Some of the teachers are not friendly and when I would go pick-up my child they would in front of the TV. No playground which I was told would be built in a few months and never happened.
