My child did not go to Preschool and had a very rough start in her learning process, she went to a charter school that did not help her at all, and to 2 public schools during the testing process that although they tried to "help her" in paper, but the method was not effective in reality. she qualified for the McKay scholarship and after much research into schools in the area west dade addressed all my concerns. they caters to the individual's IEP's (not just one or two hours a day or a week), small classrooms student to teacher ratios, close to home, affordability, and the list goes on about this A++ school. my daughter has been able to catch up to her grade level, and i couldn't be happier. she definitely has a bright future here. this school is like an extension of our family life. i now have a 3 year old that is also attending the day care and she is getting ahead on her pre school education. i couldn't be happier. the best thing is that the school goes from K-12 so they will not have to readjust to changing school over time.
