Tammy:

They’re just watching their faces and when that light bulb comes up and when they smile, it just makes your day. It just makes you feel like, “Wow, this child just got something. This child is happy. This child wants to come to school every day.”

Maria:

Every time that a child comes to you saying, “Look, Ms. Maria, I finally got it. I can write my name. I know my numbers.” That is the reward. Absolutely.

Tammy:

You just feel like you’re a big family here. And so this is mainly what I think Children First has to offer, is that family, that bond with teachers, with the staff, the advocates, the director, Mr. Phillip, everybody here is like a big family, and that’s the best thing about Children First.
