The Center manager is beyond helpful, the staff are amazing and my children love it there. What makes it better is the amount of time they spend with the children outside instead of stuffed into a childcare room for majority of the day plus the daily fee is very fair and reasonable. I could not recommended Bass Valley enough to any families looking for a childcare center.
