    My daughter has been going to Leapstart for last 2 years and loves this place. The teachers and the staff are amazing. Many festivals/events are celebrated here. They provide good quality … More hot lunches and also help the students with their homework. Kids get picked up from school always on time and have automated check-in messages sent to you. They maintain very good cleanliness and hygiene. My daughter also loved the summer program, they had lot of enriching and fun activities. I highly recommend this after school.

    We are sending our daughter to Bubb center. She liked the center from day one. Facility is nice and clean. They also provide home made food to kids. My daughter was a picky eater but to my … More surprise, she liked the food and started trying new things as well. Chitra and her staff are really nice and friendly. They also provides classes for Arts at the center, which my daughter likes very much. Also, their pick up service from the school is really good, they sent messages to both the parents as soon as kids are picked up from the school. Overall we are really happy that we opted for Leapstart.
