I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I love this daycare. My son has learned so much since he started going there. My son's speech therapist says she has never seen a daycare that cares about helping my son excel in his development goals as this Development Center. The low child to teacher ratio gives my child the extra attention he needs to help him excel. I know for a fact the owner has my child's best intrest at heart. She is not in this business just for the money she is in it for the experience. Her desire to help kids excel and get ready for kindergarten can quickly be niticed. I love Great Start Development Center and would recommend it to anyone!
