School Reviews

  • Recommended August 05, 2013 - My son has been at Gwen''s for his entire 3 1/2 years and the program has put him above kids his own age that are in traditional daycares and well beyond kids not in daycare. The teachers are amazing! Your kids are their kids, I feel so confident in leaving my son with them, I know if he has a bad day Ms Sandy will give him a big hug and put a smile on his face and Ms Alyssa will bring in his favorite monster trucks. There isn''t a bad thing to say about this daycare, the program, the teachers and even the other parents are a gem and I HIGHLY recommend you bring your child here! - Posted by Parent
