Parent Testimonials

"I am so happy our family found the Early Learning Center. Because of the unmatched patience and support of his teachers, my previously reluctant boy learned to join in activities and is getting an amazing head start for his kindergarten career. Every afternoon he comes home excited to tell me about his day: making artwork, hearing stories, music time, swimming, and having fun both in the gigantic KidZone and outdoor playground. This program has helped my son in so many ways, and for that I am grateful."

"I am very happy with our decision to join the Early Learning Center; everyone has been supportive of our transition to our new school.  My daughter cheers every morning because she is headed to school.  I appreciate the financial assistance program for providing help so she can experience the school she enjoys each and every day!"
