Children First In Action!
My daughter, now age 7, is reading well above her grade level because Children First gave her a strong start. We had a lot of tough times and I don’t know what I would have done without my Family Advocate’s encouragement. My kids love coming here and I am just so thankful we found Children First.
Children First helped me gain such incredible confidence, both professionally and with my family. I can never repay them for all they have given to us.
Our days are long and I wish I had more time to spend with my kids, but I am determined to do whatever it takes to provide for them. Life is good and I have Children First to thank for a large part of that.
Children First is a great program. They helped me grow both as a person and as a parent…We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.
My son attended Children First and has been in advanced classes from 3rd grade on. Now, in 8th grade, he was invited into the Advanced International Certificate of Education program with the Sarasota School District! This opportunity is because of Children First! I know I cannot say thank you enough.
