You came to our center, with an completely unvaccinated child since birth, we mentioned we would need a form filled out for being exempt. You started swearing at our staff,and with children in room. We decided it would NOT be a good fix. Truth needs to be spoken. This is a great center, loving staff.

I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

This center violated state law NH RSA 141-C by refusing an enrollment application with a religious exemption where rights are given under state law. My son was discriminated against because of his state rights to religious freedom and they also violated his constitutional rights to religion freedom and right of conscience.
