According to Jeff, “The best thing about our program is the great kids we get to work with each day. Our days are spent with laughs, conversation, play, exploration, discoveries, and fun. We enjoy creating an environment conducive to ‘light bulb moments’—you know, the moments where kids grasp new ideas. It is wonderful to get to see them rediscover the world.” PUB LISHEDBY R E DLEAF P R E SS PUB LISHEDBY R E DLEAF P R E SS
