  • We didn’t want to move our children from the fantastic program

    As our family was looking for a new home, we turned down a great apartment based only on the fact that it was too far from The Children’s Workshop. We didn’t want to move our children from the fantastic program they have here…and we’ve since found a home much closer to the center.
