I always feel informed, appreciate all the work that goes into finding a great staff, the summer events are so exciting and add such a special touch to childhood in the summer. Not to mention the ever changing world of COVID. Truly appreciate all...

“Friendly staff. My child has been going here for over a year and she loves it. She adores her teachers and all the fun things they do inside of the classroom as well as in the community with special events. She can write her first and last name and I have loved watching her grow into the Pre-K...
