My son attended Howell Station Academy for one year. The staff was friendly, the center was clean, and the price was great. However, the center had horrible issues with employee turnover. They never had enough instructors, so they would move children from room to room if an instructor quit or was out sick. My son never knew which instructor he would have or which room he'd be in when he arrived. That might work for older kids, but little ones thrive on stability and routine. I think the workers there do care, but the owner needs to find a way to hire more instructors and keep the ones she gets. Sometimes I saw instructors with 16+ children, ages 1 to 3, for hours at a time. That is way too much.
