The Gingerbread House is an amazing facility! The teachers are very involved! They cater to any special needs of the children. They are conscious of any food allergies & adjust. My son is more than ready for kindergarten based on his learning at this center.

The Gingerbread House has been an amazing experience for my children (4 yr girl and 2 1/2 yr boy). they have  caring & loving staff and most of them have many years of experience. my children have learned many activities - letters in  english and in spanish and also sign language!
I'm very happy we moved our kids to The Gingerbread House!
