If we had to boil down the impact that Aldea has had on our family it would be this: Developing the love of learning. Our oldest son was bored every day, attending the status quo day care. Once we moved him to Aldea, within two weeks, he was actively engaged and genuinely excited to wake up and go to school. He has grown academically and socially over the last few years – so much that we decided to keep him there for his kindergarten year and transfer his brother for preschool. The teachers and staff have created a safe and nurturing environment where the focus is on the positive behaviors and choices they see in the children, and they reinforce those behaviors with praise and kudos. The school community is welcoming and full of diverse perspectives – the perfect environment for raising children in a global community.
