When our son was accepted to his school, she was my first phone call because we really valued her opinion and input. 


Mom of 4

The information Libby shared with our preschool families is invaluable. Things change so quickly in Wake Co. and it was wonderful to have her come in with current information regarding the choices families have for Kindergarten.
