What People Are Saying

This is a safe, fun school with great food and facilities. My children feel safe and well cared for, and I feel
confident leaving my children here.

- M.H.

Because of the size of the school, teachers really get to know the students and that makes all the difference. They bring in musicians, bi lingual
teachers, field trips, parent events, etc. What I like the most is that I can call my son’s teacher at any time during the day and talk directly to her for an update.

- JP

He loves going to daycare, and has formed special relationships with his teachers and classmates. The environment is safe, food is healthy,
and staff are warm and friendly. His days typically include outside time, music, reading, nap time, and art projects.

- Chandra

It is great that this is a non profit daycare and there is a board that can be joined if one would like to implement change.
