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.
A parent

Children are often disappointed that Children’s Village is closed on the weekends!

Preschool parent
A preschooler, nervous about his first day, hesitated at the door. Another child waved and smiled, encouraging him to come in — and he did!

Former students often invite their Children’s Village teachers to their high school graduation.
