Ms. Shena is a really special person. She is very dedicated to providing a nice safe place for your child. My son had a good time with her and couldn't stop saying how much he liked being at her place. I will high recommend Ms. Shena and I will continue taking my son to her.

My son took to Ms. Shena very quickly! He actually took to her a little too much and would often have fits when I came to pick him up. She always took gret of him and made sure he was fed and enjoyed his time while at her house. I was often able to call her at the last minute and she would always try to make adjustments to her own schedule to accommodate me. Plus her prices are unbelievably reasonable as compared to other provider rates. I highly recommend her to take care of your child care needs!
