I have been bringing my son to Cedar Kids for a year and a half and he loves it! He has learned a lot of things that will help him to be ready for preschool and kindergarten! The staff are wonderful and it is a comfortable environment! I love all the crafts they do and also love the app that tells you what they did throughout which sometimes includes pictures! I would definitely recommend this center for child care!
