I have been working here for a little over a year and I really really enjoy it. From the time I've started until now I have always felt welcomed. The parents here are lovely and go above and beyond to show their appreciation. I have created a relationship with every family in a different way. The staff here is wonderful as well. The environment altogether is welcoming. Everyday the children greet me with big smiles and warm hugs. I really appreciate the parents for allowing me to work with their children and helping them grow. I'd recommend this daycare to anyone!!!!

We love this school. The teachers are very nice and care about the kids. Our daughter counts all the other little kids at Lion of Judah as her friends, and looks forward to attending every day.

My child's well being and behavior was at risk. He was acting out as a result of suspected child abuse in the center. The suspected child abuse is under investigation. One teacher specifically is suspected of abusing the children.
