What Parents Are Saying: 

Hi Kelly

Just wanted to extend a thank you to and your staff for a very excellent job when it came to my son Brian. Brian enjoyed going to your camp every day and has learned so so much. He came to your camp not knowing how to write his name and not feeling too confident about doing anything on paper.  But with your help he is successful. Thanks for being understanding and accommodating to all his little issues… I would certainly recommend child world academy to all my friends.  Thanks again.
