The ability to learn how to critically think, work as a team, collaborate with people, and interact with stakeholders is something that's really critical in today's educational environment. We know that when we send our kids off to school, they're going to be loved, well taken care of, educated, and nurtured, and that makes us feel really comfortable as parents.
