I’m so grateful that we chose this school to care for our youngest son. In the two and half years we have been attending, my son has grown and learned more than I thought possible. They have loved him like their own, making the transition back to work seamless.

I absolutely love this school! My son has been going there for over a year now and the team at Countryside has always been incredibly attentive, loving, and caring towards him. They post pictures and videos throughout the day which allow me to see all the activities they have him involved in – which includes a lot, story time, arts and crafts, music time, playground activities, etc.

Finding a great quality daycare and starting a new job during a pandemic can be very stressful. However, the frequent updates/ pictures/ videos in the portal put me at ease. This is not your average child care facility. Both of my children are actually learning while still having fun everyday. The staff is amazing and treat you like family. The facility is very clean, secure, and structured for children. I definitely recommend
