Hear from our parents

I love the teachers and the curriculum. My son is so smart!! I also love how clean it is.
Marilou S., Wilmington South Campus

Easy and open to speak to teachers and staff. Clean facility and like the structure - especially naps! Kids seem to really love their teachers and look happy! Would definitely recommend. Also love the webcam to check in, especially in the beginning!
Sarah C., Wilmington South Campus

Clean facilities, fantastic staff, great communication, mobile app with updates and camera camera and extracurricular activities
Rebecca L., Wilmington South Campus

great learning environment for my child, clean, and not a lot of staff turnover
April D., Wilmington South Campus

Great teachers that truly care about my son and provide lots of one-on-one attention and love!
Allyson A., Wilmington South Campus

The genuine care the teachers give my daughter.
Kristyn P., Wilmington South Campus

We love the facility, nutrition options, staff, activities, and ability to see our sweet girl while working
Rebecca L., Wilmington South Campus

Everything! The teachers, the activities, the schedule.
Karen R., Wilmington South Campus

Love the photos every day! Keep em coming :)
Caroline H., Wilmington South Campus

We love the camera access, food provided and SWEET teachers. Very organized. In my opinion, the only area for improvement would be smaller class sizes - but I also understand there is a cost/benefit relationship where smaller classes might mean higher tuition or worse, poorly paid teachers and most likely high teacher turnover. All in…
