We recently enrolled our daughter to Jamon. Thus far, it has been a good experience. On the first day our daughter was hesitant because she was familiar with her previous daycare. But it did not take long to get adjusted. The teachers/assistance are very welcoming and professional. Not too many students, which we love. It's a good healthy environment for our 2 years old in expanding her horizon for the future. My only complaint was the 1st day. It would have been nice to have an assigned staff explain the process or protocol. It was slightly confusing, but we figured it out.
