Parents Say...

The week before she started, I brought my 17 month old daughter to visit PS@RIA. Ms. Kristen noticed that she was nervous, and immediately stopped what she was doing to show her toys and play with her. Thanks to Kristen’s patience and kindness, my daughter didn’t want to go home that evening.

Ms. Maria has always made Rozel feel at home. Rozel is happy to see her in the morning, and tired after a long day of fun. In the toddler room at Rhode Island Ave., Rozel is learning all day and we get the pictures and take-home-art to prove it!

We started at the South Campus and moved over to RIA when they opened. I was worried about moving M from the place he had been for 4 months, but the transition has been seamless... He is thriving at RIA and we couldn’t be happier. The new location is also very beautiful and convenient for my morning coffee from Zeke’s!
