Rave Reviews

My kids love this place. My 3 yr old takes a few classes and he loves them. The teacher is engaging and very friendly. There isn’t much to do for older kids (10+) but their science section is interesting, the bees especially. Everything is very clean and well maintained, the outdoor area is cute and kid friendly as well. A smaller place but we easily spend an hour or two here each time we come.
