I am very grateful to this center. They were there for my family when we needed them and helped my daughter throughout her first 3 years and thanks to that she has been able to make progress. Enough to be at her age-level. Thank you so much to Mily especially, who saw so much potential in my daughter and never gave up. Keep up the great work guys!
