    They've taken special notice of our daughter's strengths and have helped to foster her creative and imaginative nature. They understand that pressure causes her to shut down and that she needs regular positive reinforcement in order to feel confident enough to believe she can do the thing she thought she couldn't.

    In the 4 months that Liam has been at FootPrints he is talking quite a bit more, he is pronouncing his words better and he is now kicking a ball. His personality is really blooming. Liam is even starting to use a computer and a tablet.


    Both my children's emotional and academic needs are supported, their confidence levels have soared and they continue to learn valuable life skills. They are thriving within this very nurturing and loving environment. What more could I ask for as a parent?
