My daughter went here for a few months, and while I admit that she did learn a lot and her behavior was awesome, I feel like they could do a lot better. Though the rooms are monitored by video, the owner has no idea what is going on because another girl in my little girls classroom was randomly hurt and nobody knows what happened. The parents were pulling her out anyways because they had lost their vouchers and the two teachers got yelled at for losing the child due to a stupid mistake. They also can't keep teachers, and are not good at keeping teachers in their own room. The kids get upset and act up when there are different teachers each day, and they could do a better job with that. All in all, not horrible, but if he ever has to go to daycare again I will be looking at other options.
I love this daycare, and so does my son. Not only do I feel very safe and secure when he is in their care because they have a keypad entry just to get in the building and every room is video monitored, but my son has learned so much and really enjoys going to school. He is only 2, and his doctors say that he is at the level of a normal 3 year old. I trully believe that it is because of what he has learned here. I visited a lot of centers while pregnant, and this one seemed to be the best. I have never regretted my decision to send him here.
