Reviews for Caring People Alliance
Caring People Alliance has offered so many needed services to my busy family. From their wonderful Early learning Center staff through their after school. and summer camps; we couldn't have managed without their services. The before and after care enabled my wife and I to get to work on time while providing high quality services before and after school. Their 11 week long summer camp gave our son a fun place to play that encourages his love of the arts, science, and reading, It made a huge impact on his retention over the summer and prepared him for a great transition back to the school year. We have enrolled our child in all three of their centers over the years and the locations made it easy, even though we had moved a few times over the years. Great people and great organization!
