What an incredible experience. The classroom is such a warm and enriching environment for these amazing kids (and their amazing teachers. . .). I enjoyed watching (my daughter) and her peers doing activities alone and with other children. My visit was a 100% positive and amazing experience! KMS Parent, 2012
