I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I love this school and all of my children have attended. Since the new director took over, there has been a big improvement. She loves all of the kids that attend and knows them all by name, including their parents. She is a big help to some of us parents and I wouldn't take my kids anywhere else.

If you love your children, do not send them here! My child was in the VPK and they kicked him out for not paying attention. His father sat in class one day for 2 hours. They grill the kids into learning, no fun, no sing-song and the teachers do not speak clear English. No wonder the kids get bored and want to do their own thing, they don't understand. I had some words with Pricilla on his last morning there and that same day my son was severely neglected. Luckily his father went to pick him up early. They had the kids on the playground and then put them down for a nap. My son was sweating, hair stuck to his head, shirt soaking wet and he was begging his teachers for a drink, but they ignored his pleas. Please beware that this school is not capable of catering to the individual needs of each child. They expect them to be grown up and mature already. I think children should enjoy being a child and stay young as long as possible.
Also, a little boy was crying one day and the food server lady was yelling at him. Telling him, he's always the last one in school, the first to go home and to stop crying or he's never going home again!
Parents, get a clue, if your child cries, is clingy or refuses to go to school, there is a reason why and you need to investigate. School/day care should be loving, caring and fun! At least my older child received that when she went to school.

My granddaughter just started to go to daycare there and this is her first time.This place was not compassionate towards our family needs and concerns about my granddaughter. The person I talk to was very rude and disrespectful, and I would not recommend this daycare to anyone that love their children

I don't recommend this school for any one child. The person in charge of the facility speaks down to the parents she very rude person. The school has weird mold smell to it. They also don't use good technics to teach the kids. I won't ever send my child there again or recommend any to that school.
