My 2 year old daughter herself feels the difference and happy to go to school. Thanks to teachers for a good care.
I have found this daycare center to be first class all around! From the Director (Katie) to the teachers and support staff they are all very professional and caring. This daycare really cares about your child and will do everything possible to ensure their continued growth, happiness and safety. They have so many programs and events it seems like they have something new every week! I highly recommend this facility and know you and your child will not be disappointed.
Had a problem with my dated fedder's A.C this year. Air was not coming out cold, so I had technician look at it formerly from different company. Although I feel he tried his best to correct the problem, it was to no avail. The compressor would not run. So thinking this is not going to be good having my option explained to me as in replacing the entire condensing unit. Expensive indeed! Not to mention the unbearable heat and having it replaced in friendly time frame. I decided to have a second opinion. This time with a smaller, but more reputable company, Legend Air co. Best decision. Not only was the tech promptly on arrival of opening window time slot, he had an agenda of getting first things done first. Which in this case was sorting the wiring more properly and eliminating one that was not necessary. The experienced tech, (Ron) knew exactly what he was looking at in my dated Fedder's unit. He went through a process of elimination and found the culprit. Now I have cold air. Awesome!!
Every teacher is so caring and goes above and beyond taking care of each child! I was so nervous going back to work and leaving my baby but everyone has been so amazing. I love seeing the photos and videos of my son laughing and playing and it puts me at ease to be able to check on him through the live internet cameras. The daily reports I receive are very detailed and extremely helpful. Thank you to all the staff at Children's World Academy for taking such good care of every child and family that walks through your doors!
My granddaughter Adriana started there at 3 years old. We chose Childrens World Academy after interviewing 4 other schools. They offer everything needed for the working parent. Cameras, emails and texts to stay updated, late hours, only closes very few days during the year.The staff is very attentive to all your needs. The teachers have been fabulous.Adriana is so smart, great thanks to Childrens World Academy for all their love and teaching they have poured into Adriana.
Our daughter started here at 4 months old and we have been so thrilled w her development. Now at 19 months she has learned so much and we couldn't be happier that we sent her here. The staff are caring and amazing, rooms are clean and organized, we are always kept informed of what went on for the day in daily reports, and being able to watch her on the webcam still gives us peace of mind knowing she's safe and having a great time! We highly recommend CWA to anyone looking in the area...there is no other place around like it! And since she never wants to leave at the end of the day that says everything to me!
This place is amazing. If you have to work, you can't do better for your baby (or yourself) than sending them here!! You will access to cameras to watch your child during the days. Pictures of your child and important notices sent directly to your phone. It is warm friendly and safe environment for kids of all ages.
Had worry free contract for a long time but never needed it. I finally needed it because my hot-water baseboard heat wasn't working in my upstairs zone. I was sent 4 technicians over a period of 3 months all winter and the problem was never fixed. All winter I suffered. I had enough of the idiots and asked a friend if they knew anyone and they said Legend Air was the best. I took their word for it and called them. Was the best thing that could have happened. Technician called when he was on his way and arrived on time. He fixed it in 10 mins and did maintenance on it. Only cost me 125$. Over the past 5 years with the Worry Free contract I spent 300$ and what do I get? 4 incompetent technicians who make me suffer all winter long. Wish I got in touch of Legend Air sooner.
My daughter has been attending Childrens' Lighthouse since Jan 2013. I am pleased with the extremely clean condition of the facility and professionalism of the staff. I would highly recommend this school to everyone.
Been here several times over a few years I've never seen the same barber and they all were distracted by other barbers or their friends coming in to hang out. Some were better at cutting but most were rushing through the cut which means they scratch your head/neck and is not what I pay for.I'd say if you needed a haircut then these guys will do but they don't seem to care how they treat you unless you are one of their friends. I certainly wouldn't bring any kid to this place but maybe they are gentler with children than they are with an adult male.
Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
