I couldn't be happier with making the switch to NADC. Jayden has definitely adjusted and made lots of friends. I know it will prepare him for the road ahead to kindergarten.
I currently have three kids enrolled at NADC, and although we work hard to pay for it, it's worth every penny. They have learned so much and always enjoy going to school.
I live about two minutes away from where I work, but drive ten minutes out of my way to NADC and back. When people ask me why or give me funny looks, I tell them it is so worth it.
