School Reviews

Love love this school.. I have two kids that are attending school since 6 weeks old. SCHOOL is doing fantastic job educating my children. My 5 year old reads at the 1st grade level, my 3 year old is recognizes the letters in the alphabet and numbers up to 10... and most important is the fact that my kids LOVE this place. There were so many times that they refused to go home!!!! KUDOS to staff !!
