School Reviews

I was happy to learned that Little Red Train is still going strong, Little Red Train private school is the school where two of my kids was enrolled for a time in their lives, at the age of 2 yrs & 9 months, the both of them. Little Red Train have given my kids a great head start on learning and development skills. The staff was great there, who worked very well with the little ones. Thanks so very much, your hard work and great skills paid off. Again, Thank you.
