Hear from our parents

The teachers are wonderful, the communication is great and they truly listen to what is needed, and my son loves every day he’s there!
Maddie C., West Creek

I like the cleanliness, location, cameras, activities for kids, meals for kids. I do not like that nap time is over 2.5 hours daily (11:45 am to 2:30 pm) and I think the kids should get more outside time.
Elena P., West Creek

We love the personal touch and the loving teachers are top notch. Our child is in wonderful hands and well cared for. The only wish concern we have is sometimes difficulty with language barrier.
Allison M., West Creek

The teachers and staff are awesome and so accommodating of our child's needs.

It’s family. From the moment you walk in the doors to the hallways, to the classroom, everyone greets you and knows our name. They genuinely want to know how our family is doing and everyone cares. You can’t teach that or build that out of nothing. West creek has our heart and our family.
