I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My children are 3 and 5. They have been going to Uriah Daycare since they were 6 weeks old. We all love it there! The staff are very attentive to the needs of my children and my family. They host great family activities! My child loves going to "school" everyday! My children learn new things everyday!

I used to send my daughter to this daycare and she always came home crying because she did not want to go. One day i randomly showed up so that i could see what the fuss was about, and there she was sitting in the corner on a time out balling because she did not know how to say the prayer before eating lunch and they refused to teach it to her. My daughter hated it there!
