I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The staff is always very friendly and helpful. They give me a full report of what my child did for the day. I have seen a lot of turn over for the infant room, but I trust Deb's judgement in terms of the staffing. They have activities planned daily, and the children all seem very engaged and enjoy what is planned out for them. I would recommend this center to any of my friends or family looking for a reliable, safe environment for their little one!
