What Our Parents Are Saying

I just want to say thank you to you and your staff for taking such great care of my grandson Mason and for helping him transition back to Ladybird Academy so smoothly and comfortably.

I cannot tell you what a relief it is for me being so far away and being able to peek in via the web cam and see our little boy having such wonderful days at school. I know he is receiving the very best and most attentive care while also learning and playing with other children all in a very safe, clean and cheerful environment. Mason is so happy to be back at Ladybird and we are so grateful. I hope you know what a difference you and your staff are making in providing such loving care for all our children.
