What Mommies and Daddies are Saying
I would not have survived the first year with such happiness and appreciation and understanding without the class. Thanks for helping me and Jack thrive!
I had no idea how life changing being a part of this group would be- it has helped me feel more confident in my role as a new mother, it has helped create a greater understanding of my daughter, and has fostered many new friendships which I know will continue for years and years.
You had a significant impact in our lives during this exciting and also sometimes overwhelming phase of being a "young" family.
. . . just how valuable what you do is, and more importantly how much your dedication and experience over the years has come to guide us on a fundamental level. You impact our ability to nurture and raise well adjusted children.
