Forever grateful for excellent child care…

Going from a private unlicensed daycare of 3 kids, to a (larger, licensed) facility was nerve wracking, but in the end, we got exactly what we’d hoped for out of it; socialization for our son prior to starting school, comfortable, friendly and educational environment with a good amount of outdoor play. I felt comfortable from day one, and loved the […] staff, the food provided, the activities/crafts and especially the graduation ceremony! Our son blossomed there. His confidence and adaptability grew. And it was all because of what you all provided.
