I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My daughter loves Kiddie Garden, and my husband and I have always appreciated the careful, balanced approach the teachers and, especially, the director has taken with our child. I've always felt good about leaving her in their care. I stopped by during naptime once and noticed Farrukh, the director, walking around to the infant cribs and gently nudging the babies just to make sure they were ok, and that really sealed it for me. I feel like the teachers really love the children and care about their emotional and intellectual development. A great find!
