Our son loves BLC and has experienced a wonderful range of experiences we wouldn’t have the time to run him to separately including cultural cooking, karate and soccer. He also started getting some great help with reading. The core program is also excellent- the instructors are warm, provide a calm and loving atmosphere and regularly expose the kids to new learning experiences. We get complaints from our son if we pick him up too early from BLC!

My daughter loves staying at BLC. In fact, she doesn't want to go home when I come to pick her up! I witness her playing with toys, coloring, making projects, and interacting with the teachers and peers. The staff seems to care about the kids a lot. I'm glad my daughter is there.

BLC has been a wonderfully inviting place for my son to make friends, have fun, and learn many new things -- including Spanish! The BLC staff are always accommodating and truly care for the kids in their program.

BLC has been a wonderful addition to our family life! As a parent, I can't thank the BLC staff enough for their continuous flexibility and nurturing love and care toward my son. He enjoys every minute of it! As a teacher, I love seeing our students getting access to this rich Spanish after school program where they can make new friends and embrace hidden talents through music, dance, cooking, sports, etc. Blanca, Nora and Adriana are so loving and take care of all children as their own. We are very blessed to have them as part of our Windom community!

The WERC program is excellent! I only wish this amazing enrichment experience had been around when my own children were in school. I am frequently able to observe what is happening and I am always impressed. What fortunate parents and children who get to be part of this high quality supplement to Spanish immersion.

The WERC staff is so caring and loving and we are thrilled with the experience our daughter has had with the program. It gives her another opportunity to speak and hear Spanish, to play with kids from different ages, and to explore fun classes like learning about recycling, photography, jewelry, and more. She loves the crafts projects!
