“Miss. Daniela, I am so grateful to have you as Anika's teacher. After my family, you are the only person she gets so comfortable with. I had so many inhibitions when I sent her to center initially however now I think very little about her when she is in there, as I know that she is in good hands.”



“Ms Anne, thank you very much for your care for Gavin! Gavin has been enjoying the center so much with such a great teacher! Thank you for all you've done!”



“I want to thank Miss Katie for her kind care for Gavin. One of Gavin's biggest reasons to enjoy the days in the center is Miss Katie. Thanks for all you have done!”
