    How will I know which childcare center/preschool is right for my family?

    Ask around. Do research online. Most importantly go visit. Once you have decided what type of care works best for your family’s needs (in-home, faith-based, large daycare facilities, child development centers/preschools), choose several you want to see first hand. There are many good checklists that can be referenced online, including a list of quality indicators at www.scottsdaleacademy.com, to assist in your research.

    Two basic elements of a site-visit that tell volumes:

    1. Look to see if the children are happy as well as the staff.
    2. What does the atmosphere feel like?
    Most importantly go with your instinct.

    I have several shrubs that were hurt by the cold. Should I cut them back now?

    No, wait until later in the Spring before cutting them back because not all of the damage is clearly evident yet. Some stems may be partially damaged and be subject to dying back later in the season requiring a second pruning. After new sprouts emerge on the limbs cut them back several inches into healthy wood.

    How do I know what size mattress I need?

    Here are the measurements of the most common size mattresses:

    Common Sizes
    Twin 38" x 75"
    Full 54" x 75"
    Queen 60" x 80"
    King 76" x 80"

    Not So Common Sizes
    Twin XL 38" x 80"
    Full XL 54" x 80"
    Olympic Queen 66" x 80"
    Cal King (waterbed king) 72" x 84"

    You must take into consideration the size of your room and the space available. You want to make sure that there is enough room for your mattress and your furniture. Make sure there is enough room in bed for both you and your partner to move freely. Also take into consideration if you have any pets or children that may be sleeping with you. Because your new mattress will most likely be thicker than your current mattress, the height of your mattress is also important to consider. A thicker mattress may make it difficult to get in and out of bed or it may cover up too much of your headboard. These problems can be solved with either a low-profile box spring, a low-profile frame or both if needed.

    Will my order and credit card information be safe?

    We use secure online ordering but regardless of what happens on our site – a slip of the mouse (unlikely), a security breach (highly unlikely) there is no risk to you. In the case of credit card fraud, this means that we’ll pick up the first $50, and the credit card company will take responsibility for the rest. In addition, we’ll do our very best to work with the credit card company to assure that the problem is resolved with minimum hassle.
