It Takes a Village to Raise a Child

Supporting The Village

“The Village is more than childcare because though they are undoubtedly unmatched in promoting the academic, adventurous, and emotional growth of children, they allow those of us who would never have the ability to turn our dreams into goals while also raising a family, to pursue our ambitions, and make them a reality.  They have given us the chance to create a better future for ourselves and our children.” -A Village Parent
