I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son attended this facility from 6 weeks-5 years and attends summer camp. Staff are great communicators and everyone is very welcoming and professional. My son learned so much from the teachers. I would highly recommend this childcare.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

If I could give no stars I would. This daycare is too small for the amount of children they have and the staff is unwelcoming, especially management. There's always an awful smell. Teachers rarely communicate with parents that come into the room, which is just rude. I don't understand how this place is 5 star. Unbelievable. What is state thinking???!!!

The rooms where way too small for the amount of children and the place smelled horrible. The teachers seemed nice but the facility was definately subpar.
