What We've Heard"This place is amazing! I only wish it had been open when my own child was little. I checked it out recently because my two-year-old nephew was coming to visit. It's warm, welcoming, and beautifully equipped. I can imagine spending an entire day there relaxing and chatting with other mothers while watching my toddler play, while all of us are being looked after by Jean, the delightful woman who runs the program."
