School Reviews

Approximately 4 years ago my wife and I entrusted our daughter to the care of Kangaroo Kids. Not once since that day have we regretted that decision. Our daughter has found and extended family in her classmates and her wonderful teachers, who not only care for our little angel, but educate her to the highest standards (trust me my wife has been teaching grade school for 29 years). Thank Kangaroo Kids!!!
