"They tell me everything she learns..."

My daughter just started in the infant and toddler class at the Pimlico location, and I love them. I love the staff. They tell me everything she learns throughout the day, how many times they change her, and what she eats. If you are looking for a learning center for your child, I recommend Smart Steps.
