We love a Child's Place - it offers such a warm and nurturing space for play and learning for all 4 of my children. From the nature walks around campus, to the shaded playground - the program offers so much to support little people's imagination, fun, and play.

ACP has been great for our son. He loves Miss Anita, and he's been growing academically by leaps and bounds.

We feel so blessed to have stumbled on this absolute gem! We've had experience with nannies and several other high-quality early learning centers, but the level of experience ACP teachers bring is unparalleled. Most of the teachers have been here for 30+ years and it shows. The hours are great and the cost is typical of other centers we considered. I can't recommend it highly enough!
