“Ms. Yvette truly cares for her students. One morning, Priya thought she was going to the zoo but we dropped her off at daycare instead. Ms. Yvette took out all the stuffed animals and acted like they were at the zoo. She is so loving, caring, and nurturing! Thank you for all you do!”



“Thank you so much for taking care of our baby girl. She always smiles when she sees you at drop off and we can tell she is happy. We appreciate that more than we can put into words. ”
