“They don’t just remember our child’s names, they know their likes and dislikes, their moods. They listen to them. They talk to them. The teachers treat my daughter just like she is their own child. These ladies not only show kindness and love to my daughters, but also reach out to me on a family level.”

Lisa, Parent at Jack & Jill
