What They Are Saying

Looking for a great daycare for your children, well look no more this is the one. Nurturing Developmental & Learning Academy is the best place for all children. Each day as I enter the building, the staff is so professional and kind with smiling faces to greet me. My children don't want to leave when I go to get them; I have sat and observed the children and the staff and I am so happy this center is available and it's close to home. Thanks for all that you do. - Mary H

What They Are Saying

This is a very exceptional school!! My son has been here almost a year and he has learned sooo much. They have taught him how to write, spell and even order from a menu. This school is equipped with the right staff and the right attitude to teach your children. I will recommend this school to everyone who is serious about their child’s education. NDLC keep up the great work, I especially want to thank Ms. Ellis, she is such a sweetheart and very professional women but with a loving and fun personality!! - NDLA II Parent
