"Chase was definitely not ready to go to preschool this past year, but now, because of the wonderful people and structured classroom, his achievements have made my husband and I rethink the possibility of him being able to go to preschool next year. I no longer look at my son as an infant; he is now a little boy who goes to school. Thank you for helping my baby grow up.”
