The food and nutrition program is the best. And, classroom cameras are a big benefit.

The teachers are very dedicated and keep our kids busy with walks, music, crafts, and many other fun activities. We love seeing all the new things they have learned when they come home.

All of the teachers really want to be here -- they really care about the kids.

John Ladick
Dad at Hudson

They have a camera in each room, and as a parent, I can actually "see" what's happening. Also, I like that they make their own food for the kids.
