Wildewood's preschool program has made all the difference in my daughter's life. When she started she was speech-impaired and was considered borderline autistic. Somehow the teachers and speech paths worked with her to bring out her words, gifts, skills, and personality, and now, four years later, my daughter qualifies for the gifted program! Mrs. Runnels, Mr. Habrock, Mrs. Davis, and all the other teachers and paras are miracle workers. My daughter wouldn't be the happy, well-adjusted, academically-advanced child she is today without the hard work and support from the Wildewood staff. Thank you!!! You unlocked her, nurtured her, and gave me the daughter I never thought I would have. I am forever grateful.
