What are Families Saying About Let's Be Friends?

“I was worried for my son to start preschool. But having enrolled him in this program helped him build his confidence and learn how to make friends. He started school on Tuesday and he did very well and I know it is because of this program. I am very grateful.”

“Before he did not like playing with other children but now I see that he does.”

“Thank you so much for all you do to help my child. You let him be himself and guided him as needed.”

“My daughter is usually a social girl; this gave her the opportunity to see the same kids multiple times and learn their names. It also allowed me to know her friends so we can share this special experience together.”
