“My child had a good experience. I love the size of the classroom. She was able to get one on one. The musical was also a highlight. La’Nea learning her synonyms and some more sight words was a plus. Overall I think Little Wolves was a great choice. Between the teachers and Mrs. Katie, they always kept me informed about what was going on.”

Zhawnea Varric

“What I found to be a highlight of Lay Dah’s experience is her increased willingness to learn. Once she learns something at school she wants to teach. She’s excited for school everyday.”
