I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son has been enrolled in daycare for a couple years and he loves it! It is not one of these new fancy daycares but personally i like that. Its more homely and small so u get to know everyone! He cries somwtimes in the morning when i leave which is normal for him. But he has a great day! Hes comfortable with all the teachers he know the routine and loves his friends. My daughter has been to the afterschool program when they had it before corona and honestly was mad if i picked her up early. She goes to the summer camp and they ALWAYS have something scheduled to entertain the kids and she has a great time. I highly recommend!!!!
