I have nothing but great things to say about THE C.H.I.L.D Center, Inc. Both my daughters attended the center for preschool. They were more than prepared for elementary school when they left the center. Also, they continued to come to the center for after school care. I would highly recommend this center for all your childcare needs. The staff is absolutely wonderful!
