"The first words out of her mouth every day are, 'Is today a school day?'"
-- Ruth Footh, Parent

"We have found that Kaleidoscope School is a place where kids can be themselves while they are learning to spread their social wings. It is a place where risking is safe and learning happens in a natural way. Our daughter loves Kaleidoscope, because kids of all kinds flourish here and are valued for who they really are."
-- Jane Mills and Dan Drais, Parents
