"(Child) LOVED being at "mommy's gym". When I put him to bed last night, he told me he was going to dream about the gym :). I felt very comfortable having him there, and obviously (Child) did, too!"

-G.A., CWRU employee and One to One member

"My son loved his time there. The very first thing he said when I picked him up was 'Can we do this again?'.  I am glad he had a great time. I was a bit nervous about how he would do, now I am confident to use this awesome facility within the campus. I hope you continue to have this childcare facility this summer and the rest of the year."
