“He’s learning a lot of English. At home we only speak to him in Spanish and now he speaks more English. He learns how to interact with other kids. With his teacher he learns to take direction. Before it was all about do as I say. Now he does things because he understands what we’re asking of him.  I love the environment of the school. The way they learn is they play to learn. Meanwhile in other school they show them new things and if they learn, fine, if they don’t, oh well. Here, through play, they teach them things they can actually use in their lives in the future and at the same time they give them a head start."
