... More comments from families and colleagues:
CH A departing parent writes: "Thank you for all the good work and support in this year that L. attended H&H! As a family moving to a new country we were concerned on how he would adapt to the new culture and language and we are thankful that we found your school. We appreciate the patience you all had and also the efforts to understand how to help him to thrive. I’m sure that other families feels the same way, welcomed and supported, and I thought you should know the good impacts your work can cause in the community!" Aug 2020

From a former parent with a new baby: " We all think of you and the Heart and Hands staff so often. H. is an independent and thriving three-year old with a kind and strong spirit (due in no small part to his time at Heart and Hands). We also have another son, L., born in April. I'm writing on the off-chance that there might be an opening at Heart and Hands."
