Choosing a program for your infant, preschooler, or school age child is a very personal choice for each family. The best program is the one that matches your own child’s needs, style, and interests and is compatible with your family’s philosophies, language preference, location and schedule needs, and should provide a safe environment that is fun, educational, and nurturing.
