Happy Mom Oct 01, 2014

My daughter attended Mount Zion Loving Care for 2 years. We did not have a great experience with a previous provider, but were very pleased with the care and instruction given to our child. Although it is a daycare, the center offered a curriculum which we were very happy about. She just completed the first quarter of kindergarten, but has already mastered most of the end of kindergarten benchmarks. Sister Bailey, her teacher in the five year old class room, did an excellent job with our daughter. She still talks fondly of her time there.
