we are so glad a friend told us about this preschool. previously our child was at another school for a month and cried going in and when we picked him up. it was horrible. so we took him out of that and into vla. i cannot say enough about how awesome this place is! now our child smiles on his way to school. the teachers are soooo caring. your search for the perfect preschool can end here. this is the place! no regrets at all. we are moving and i can only hope we can find something even slightly as awesome as this place. that would be asking a lot.
