I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I love Heaven's Little Angels Childcare Center because I know that when I drop my three children off they are in a loving place. The staff there are all warming and welcoming. They genuinely care about the children and parents too! They are always energetic (even though I am sure some days that they are tired. My children love going to Heavens little Angels! Oh and I forgot to mention that they also provide preschool for the children as well. The teacher Miss Ashley has her early childhood education degree from lock haven university. I love that I can drop my kids all off at one place and they can receive childcare as well as get a education that prepares them for kindergarten.
