I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I absolutely love this school. My daughter attended this school ad well as my son. Great pre-school, daycare, after school program. All the teachers are sweet and really do care about your kids. I walk my one child to school there every morning and then walk my oldest to her school. It's a lot but I deff. Want him to continue pre-k there.
