“We love Kidstop because there are not many places where you can bring your children and know that they are not just having someone babysit them. They are loved and safe in Kidstop. The program helps my boys when they struggle with school work or reading. The program focuses on all areas of our kids – fun, games, attention, and more. My family will not change our childcare situation at all!”    —Tracy, Kidstop Parent
