General School Comments: From the Parents


  • Parent # 1

    my child attends this school and mrs india is such a wonderful director, she isnt just there to baby sit your child, she nurtures the children and makes you as a parent feel comfortable with leaving your child in her care. The facility has a new number (803)772-1961

    I believe the strenghts are the amout of time, care, and effort put into the kids and their well being is incredible. The prices are very affordable. If a problem ever arises it is not a problem. To the director, it is something that can be accomplished and taken care of in a orderly fashion. If you have something that bothers you, she will listen and try to make the best of it. All kids are very happy and so are the parents.
