The experience has been great. She loves it. Her teacher is good. It has been really good. She has been going there for two weeks now. The instructors are very friendly with the kids and are patient. The kids seem to enjoy the class. My daughter loves it and I think she loves her teacher too.

Sent both of my kids here during the summers when they were K-5th grade. A trustworthy, fun, caring and fair group of counselors watched over the kids, and engaged in activities with them. They keep it fresh and fun by doing different activities each day and going on a lot of field trips, even a couple of overnight camping trips (my kids still talk about how fun it was). They also feed the kids healthy food for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Hours and rates are reasonable for everything kids do all summer and the comfort of knowing your kids are well taken care of and not bored or sitting around doing nothing all day. Only con is that if they were on a field trip, sometimes they would get back pretty late due to traffic (5:30 or 6:00)... not much can be done about that. If I needed my kids at a specific time, I would stay in contact with a counselor and coordinate picking up my kids from the field trip.

is now 4.5 months old and we are so happy we chose to send her there. The care givers/teachers are great with her. They give us daily reports so we know how she is doing. They respect us and go above and beyond so we are able to keep her on a schedule. We highly recommend this daycare
