My family has been attending ABC for about 5 years now. With one child in Kindergarten and one who is almost two, we have been a part of ABC at every stage. The teachers are what make ABC wonderful. They are all caring, compassionate, loving and attentive to all of the children. The kids get to do plenty of fun activities throughout the day and at every age. The app that the school has implemented is fantastic. I am able to see what is happening throughout the day. I feel more connected form work. My kids love ABC very much.

Our daughter has been going to ABC since she was 3 months old. That is a small child.. to go and allow someone to watch. She loves her "school" to this day. We are fortunate to have found them! Thanks Debbie and her staff!!

My son`s been at ABC Children`s center for a few months now. We are very pleased so far. The center is a perfect size for a daycare/preschool. It is not too big and not too small. My son has learned so much already in just a few months. He will be heading to kinder soon and I`m very confident he will do so well with all the preparation he`s getting at ABC. The staff at ABC are all amazing. Everyone has been so friendly. I love that many of the teachers have been there for years.

We have entrusted ABC Children's Center to take care of our daughter who is now almost a year old. She has been there since she was two and a half months. The teachers whom are responsible for her care and well-being do a great job to manage her needs, and ensure she is happy and needs are met. Ms. Kristine and Ms. Bita are phenomenal teachers and I'd highly recommend them both. In the infant class the teachers do a great job at the 1:4 ratio with the children, and have a good schedule for feeding, nap times, changing diapers, and learning/play time. My daughter takes two regular naps/day and is always excited to see her teachers and friends when she goes there.
