great place to have your child in, they always have something going on, growing plants, eggs hatching, dancing, sports program, making cupcakes... The lunches are freshly made and cooked on premises by staff, and apparently it's very delicious, my child is normally a fussy eater, but would ask for another portion. The playground is very child friendly yet very well thought-out with all the necessary equipment. The staff are like mothers, so caring and friendly.
