In fall of 2016, Northwest Center Kids received a letter that started like this:
Dear Northwest Center Kids,
The letter was written by the family of a child who was previously enrolled our Early Learning preschool (and has since left for Kindergarten). Our inclusive classrooms provided a foundation of support and made a lasting impact on the family. The letter goes on to say:
Erika's speech was noticeably different within months. Another real benefit was the social interaction that she was exposed to every day. As a child with hearing loss, she had a hard time blending in with other children because she couldn't always hear what was said. That issue was quickly dissolved as well.
In appreciation of our inclusive Early Learning preschool and hardworking staff at Northwest Center Kids, Parker's family purchased some beautiful, custom painted items for the classroom.
Our award-winning services for children provide early intervention, inclusive early childhood education, and after school programs. For more information about Northwest Center Kids and how you can get involved, contact us.
