Testimonial from parent, December 2020

What a year it has been! I cannot thank Courtney and the OOSH Team enough for all they have done for my boys. We are so fortunate to have access to have such amazing care for our children. Courtney, you bring so much love and kindness to your job. It is such a relief as a working parent to know 100% that your kids are loved and cared for. Thank you!!!!!
I actually look forward to picking up the boys and hearing about their afternoon.

Take care, Merry Christmas to ALL of the management team as well.

Warmest regards,
