WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Our son is just about 2.5 and has been in Marissa's class for two sessions. We have seen him grow and learn by leaps and bounds. I can't say enough about how wonderful this class has been for my son and his nanny as well as for us. We have really enjoyed the weekly newsletters and crafts, advice on developmental milestones and those sometimes difficult toddler phases that come and go and getting to know Marissa. It's been the perfect activity, and I'm sure he'll be much more prepared and confident when he starts preschool in the fall! We have all learned a lot through our experience."
