I feel my son (who is autistic) has had an incredibly high-quality experience at this school. He is currently a kindergartener in public school, but has been a part of the La Petite family since he was 15 months old. Some weeks he is there after school two days a week, but when public school is not in session he usually spends all day at La Petite. The teachers here are fantastic and I feel that they
support an environment where all the children can learn and grow in a secure and loving environment.
