School Reviews

I''ve had two kids attend this center and have been very happy with the care and early childhood education they have received. The teachers work hard and many have been there for years and years. The kids get to do many different activities like cooking, tumbling, sports, learn Spanish and sign language. My only complaint is that they stopped offering Kindergarten and closed the swimming pool.
