Hear from our parents

The staff and Teachers are great! Modern and very clean facility!
Lea S., Santa Ana

The staff is genuinely interested in getting to know my child. They care about her, and make sure she always has a good day.
Danielle P., Montville

The staff has been phenomenal in giving my kids a fun, safe and loving learning environment; the facilities are clean and comfortable, and the curriculum more than prepared our older son for the academics of kindergarten.
Valerie D., Lanham

I love the interactive activities for infants, especially the ones which are sensory-focused. I also love the mobile app (Tadpoles) and video camera (Watch Me Grow) because they give so much peace of mind and reassurance to parents.
Alyssa L., Plainfield
