Testimonials

Dan Flannery, Cradle Inn Daycare

"I thought I would pass a bit of information to you regarding a potential new parent who contacted us last week. The comments made by the client included how they "loved what they saw on our website" and how informative it was compared to other sites they had looked at. They will be meeting with Karen later this week to determine if we are the fit they are looking for. I wanted you both to know that it was our great looking and informative website that caused them to want to meet Karen."
