My daughter talks about Children’s Village as a magical place. Her friends keep asking why they can’t attend Children’s Village, too!

I love learning from the children. One taught me about Pointillism, paintings made up of little dots. I wonder where he learned that? Here!

I love the way Children's Village is so accommodating to immigrant families and families new to the area. I learn a lot because of this outreach.
