I was an assistant for Donna Baril for a short time & can I just say working at Miss Donna's reminded me how grateful I am that i never enrolled my children into daycare. I'm sure there are worse places but I'm also certain not all is up to code! Beware, she puts on a pretty good facade.

Miss Donnas is by far the best daycare around! I couldn't say enough great things about the program and Miss Donna herself! My daughter loves going every morning! Its educational, fun and super clean! This is the place you want to send your children!
