When we first joined CCLC 4 1/2 years ago, we were originally drawn to the calm, clean, light-filled space. Well that and the teachers re-assuring presence in the infant room. But as is so often the case, it's been the people that have made it such a wonderful experience start to finish. We have literally not had a single day in our entire 4 1/2 years where we've been anything other then delighted with how well L is being taught, nurtured, celebrated and, in many cases given the quirky and fun nature of our girl, humored.
You've got a fantastic group of committed, caring and talented individuals there and we are very thankful for it. Bur truly our most favorite thing about CCLC - the thing we tell folks when they ask about where L goes to school - is how everyone who works there just seems to be generally and genuinely happy people. We love that energy and can think of no better environment for our girl to have spent her first few years.
- L's folks, parents
