School Reviews

My children went to Westwood for 3 years and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this school/daycare. The teachers truly care about the children and it shows. It is difficult enough to drop your children off everyday but it makes it easier when you don't have to worry about their wellbeing. I had no worries when my children were attending Westwood. Both of my children learned a great deal while they were there and Westwood fostered their curiosity for the world.
