I have used this provider for more than 6 months

This is the most amazing early learning center! We have sent both of our boys here starting at 12 months, and our experience has been nothing short of exceptional. The director is a hands-on, dedicated advocate for the kids. There is very little turnover in staff, and we have loved every teacher the boys have had. I highly recommend this place for child care.
