I have been so impressed by this center. This is the most clean and developmentally appropriate center I have ever seen. I have been so happy and actively watched them stick to their illness policy. I would never take my child anywhere else, as they do their best to make sure sick children stay home.I know in a daycare you can only do so much, but the director Lindy, has been amazing and I would not entrust my child to anyone else. I love this center and staff!!

This place is wonderful. My daughter went to VPK here last year and now my son is going here. Every teacher I have meet here is wonderful and I love their curriculum. It is well designed and it gives the children a head start on kindergarten. I wouldn't go any other place. It is very clean, polite, and friendly.

It is appalling what goes on at this childcare center. Their practices are unsafe and unhealthy for the children and workers there. I would not bring my children here under any circumstances.

I was impressed with the generous room sizes, atmosphere, friendliness, cleanliness, and credentials of the staff. However, both times I visited within two months of eachother, there were the same two major standout concerns. I entered this building through the backdoor by the playground. Staff told me it is never secured. Anyone from anywhere can walk right in and snatch a child or do something else horrendous. I would not wait for a problem to occur before doing something! Why have a front door lock when the back door is always open? I walked in through the back, where a line of children were being taken to classrooms. One adult did not notice me much. Another smiled. No one questioned my presence. I even stood in line with the children and walked around the inside of the building. I was literally shaken by this and told a person at the desk I would no longer consider this an appropriate alternative for my child. The other problem I have are the very short parts of the fencing surrounding the play area that is right along side a noisy busy highway. I also mentioned this concern on my first visit. Many small children can easily and quickly climb a 4 foot chain link fence. This is dangerous neglect in my book!

My child attended this school for more than three years and I was extremely happy with everything.  The facilities are clean, the teachers are awesome, the children are always engaged and seem happy.  The directors work hard to ensure my child has a great experience.  I would never take my child anywhere else.
