Love the teachers and the curriculum. Our kids are so happy there ! - Sweta K. on 04/23/2021

We love Jen and Rita - and Owen does too! Their communication is wonderful - they go above and beyond by sending out a separate monthly email (outside the normal communication channels) with the things our kiddos are working on, which has helped us in working on those same skills/milestones at home. Owen loves his teachers! - Kelly S. on 04/23/2021
