"When I was looking for a place to entrust my then 9 month old boy, I was very fortunate to have found COZY CORNER. The centre is very clean and baby stuff are cleaned and sanitized often. This to me is a winner. Everyone is very sincere in trying to provide the kids the best care and attention possible. The philosophy of giving kids freedom to do things on their own is best... I cannot emphasize how good a decision it was to put the care if my lil boy in cozy corner's hands. Total peace of mind while at work."
"Cozy Corner just like a family. Not only my kids often don't want to go home when I go to pick them up. I want to stay too:)"
