“When our child was three months old, we were seeking a safe, supportive and education minded school for her to attend full time. After researching multiple centers, we landed on Strong Foundations. Boy, are we glad we did! Strong Foundations has helped our child meet and exceed growth milestones. Today, at three years old, she is thriving and happy!”Jeannie & David
