    Making Security Our Top Priority

    Your child’s safety is our top concern here at Crème de la Crème. We want you to feel confident and secure, knowing that your child is safe when you leave them at our facility. That’s why we invested in advanced security systems so that we could easily monitor who is coming and going from our campus. We have cameras throughout the facility that allow us to continually monitor the activity of students, staff, and visitors. Our door always remains locked and is accessible only through a biometric fingerprint scan or by code access.

    A friendly team member is also posted at our main entrance at all times, seeing who is entering and leaving the facility, checking photo IDs for visitors, and ensuring visitors have proper name badges and someone to escort them about campus.

    Encouraging Exercise and Play

    • Tennis court: Your child will love playing a friendly round of tennis, while also improving their hand-eye coordination on the court.
