"We are very happy to have such a strong team attending to our kids. It is evident that they know the kids and genuinely care for them. We feel comfortable approaching staff if we have concerns or questions and appreciate when they let us know if they have concerns or want to point out one of the kids' strengths. The kids are always happy to go to daycare which is clearly a reflection of the safe and welcoming environment that the staff have provided."
