Proud Parent

Mother of 3 year old

"My daughter and I read a book the other night and afterwards she said "Mommy, did you know that the author writes the words and the illustrator draws the pictures in the book? Ms. L taught us that." I was blown away!
I wanted to post a review and let you, your staff, and the world know how impressed we are with our daughter's educational progression while with 10th Street Children's Academy!
Thank you all and keep up the great work!"
