Parents Love KidsFirst!

"Each and every one of you has touched the lives of our children in a special way. Children behave as they are treated, and it's clear that ours are treated very well." - O.B.

"As a mother and educator, I can really appreciate the quality of care, nurturing and guidance that Emily has received from KidsFirst during the past four years. I'm so impressed with her language skills in English and Spanish! And to think she is so competent on the computer is just terrific, you're all so great! I don't know what I'd do without you." - C.R. (Teacher, developmentally delayed children)

"Being an educator myself, I knew exactly what I was looking for in care for my daughter. I found it at KidsFirst. The staff is accepting and encouraging, not to mention dedicated! I have been thrilled with the care Danielle has gotten, and the academics are amazing." – E. A.

“One of the most important predictors of a child’s success in school and life is whether he or she receives a high quality preschool education.”
