Recent testimonials

Strong Foundations is an amazing school and we have always been very pleased with the teachers, classrooms, lessons, administration, etc. I love how the teachers truly know my child and really care for her development. They communicate very well with us, including amusing, endearing, or noteworthy anecdotes. She is developing such strong social skills and self-awareness. I have learned too! It's a joy to observe her growing in resilience. We love having Strong Foundations as a partner in raising her!
