Typically, we share stories of the children in our care who have special needs and are receiving our therapy services in addition to early care and education. However, we know that the model of inclusion and our high-quality program benefit children who are typically-developing. Today, we share the experience of Valentina and her family.
Val’s father, Paul, had this to say about their experience: “We had always believed one-on-one, nanny-style care was the best thing for all children in all cases, and we were glad to have that for the early months of Valentina’s life. But around 16 months or so, it became clear she wasn’t thriving in an environment like that anymore. She was unhappy and disruptive, and ultimately our caregiver recommended we explore other options. Autumn toured GTP, and we started Val there within a couple of weeks. The change was immediate. Val took to GTP amazingly well. The structure, the teachers, the other children, the meals; Val loves every bit of it. Every morning she recites the names of all her classmates and is always excited to go to “scoo”. She’s done so well there. We’re so grateful for the care she receives at GTP.”
