And from a parent - "There aren't many programs that cover the kids on "surprise" school closures as we had from the hurricane, and Padonia has been a real life saver for our family. It would have been nearly impossible to manage work and the kids this week without you."

A word from one of our parents:
"My kids have been with the Before and After Care Program for three years now. I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful convenience it is for our family. There aren't many programs that cover the kids on "surprise" school closures as we had this week (Hurricane consequences), and Padonia has been a real life saver for our family. It would have been nearly impossible to manage work and the kids this week without you." -Liz S.
