“We have two boys and the older one is in Kindergarten this year.  He’s over the moon about going to school.  He loves his classmates, teachers, activities, aftercare — absolutely everything.  This is a wonderful environment of smart, caring, thoughtful people running this school and I’d like to believe it attracts people seeking the best for their kids.”
