School Reviews

I am a parent of a former Beginnings student who is now sixteen but who attended the school when aged three to five. The program based around building emotional competency to enhance learning was fantastic. The teachers are well trained and the program was well run. My husband and I feel very fortunate to have been able to send our son here.
