What Parents Are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

We love Miss Mimi because she has taught our daughter Juliana more than we could have. She has learned numbers, letters, songs, and manners. Anytime Juliana says something that I don't know how she knew, I say, where did you learn that? And she always says, Miss Mimi. Thank you!!!
