Tracy, mother of 2-year-old

"Love, love, love this place! With Anne, I was able to find a safe place for my son to get the social and play support he needs. And unlike most places I looked at, Anne was willing to accommodate my unusual requests (like turning off the WiFi during class). It has been wonderful, and I am so grateful to have found Anne and her program."

Lanell, mother of 4-year-old

"Our Hank has LOVED the Ms. Anne experience! He’s made best friends here. The flow of their day is so very sweet and Hank loves the outdoor space. I love that his clothes come home caked with mud and glitter. Her birthday ritual is so thoughtful too! Come play with Hank and feed the pets!"

Kara, mother of 3-year-old

"As with all the best things in life, we heard of Ms. Anne and her Social Kids playschool from word of mouth and we count our blessings every day that we did. Within her home, she has created an enriching environment where our son has been able to feel safe and thus to explore and to grow. With her skillful guidance, he has been able to blossom socially and gain independence and confidence. We love and appreciate that his first school experience takes place within a home setting, where he can cook, feed pets, play in the yard and relax in the living room just as he would at his own home. I truly believe learning in such a familiar space has been paramount for our child. As the parent of a highly sensitive child, it is so wonderful to have a place where our child feels safe. Ms. Anne has worked diligently to develop strategies for success for our son over the past year and a half he has attended her playschool. She is a compassionate and knowledgeable caregiver and it is evident how deeply the children care for her as well. We feel so grateful that our son has the opportunity to spend part of this pivotal developmental time in her care."

Shaye, father of 4-year-old

"My son LOVES Ms. Anne and my wife & I do too. She is patient, kind, thoughtful and individually supports each child. My son has been a part of Ms. Anne's school from 2 until now, a 4 yr. old. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or loving space for him - she has helped him grow into a great friend and enriched his life through play and structure. We're so grateful that we have been able to be part of her community!"

Rachel, mother of 3-year-old

"We adore Anne. Not only are her expertise solid (she effortlessly helped guide and grow our child's speech while at the same time effectively supporting social and emotional focused peer based play0, but she is an amazing and compassionate human being. Anne goes above and beyond the call of duty for our family, and our son loves her. It is such a comfort as a parent to know your child is so well loved and cared for. As someone with a background in early childhood education, I cannot more highly recommend this hidden gem of a play group. It has all the quality AND all the love."

Cruce, father of 3-year-old

"Anne is more than an amazing early-childhood educator... she's a magic-maker, heart-filled kid-empowerer, parent advocator-and-empathizer, and go-above-and-beyonder. Needless to say, we love her and have only the best things to say about her home-based program. Speech-Language-Play is a bit of a hidden secret, and we're so so lucky to know Anne."

Alan, father of 3-year-olds

"Ms. Anne is simply a treasure for parents of young children. Our kids love their time with her and have learned so much under her guidance. She seems to have a unique super power for attracting engaged parents and truly wonderful children. If her services are something you're considering for your kids, she really is worth it."

Monika. mother of 2-year-old

"Our baby absolutely loves this place. We have been very happy with our choice to send our child to S-L-P. She is always happy to see Ms Anne at drop-off and happy when we pick her up. Ms Anne is very friendly and professional. She gives a thorough report at the end of each week and sends pictures of the little ones in action in the weekly newsletter, which is wonderful. What we like the most is the small play groups and one-to-one attention Ms Anne gives to each kid. Would recommend S-L-P to others."

Shireen, mother of 4-year-old and 2-year-old

"... pretend play sounds like exactly what he needs. I'm so pleased. His celebrations and agreements were also a really attentive and thoughtful way to work on what he needs to learn. We quit gymnastics, music, Spanish and art classes, and the gym daycare because he wasn't doing well in those environments and didn't want to go. He's been telling me for months that he didn't want to go to preschool (so we don't call your playgroup 'school'), and we toured eight schools (and viewed a lot more websites) before we decided on Social Kids. It seems like we made a good choice, because he says, 'Really?! I get to go to Ms. Anne's house?!' whenever we tell him that's part of the plan for the day. I think the fact that it's a small group and in a home makes it a lot easier for him to handle, and I think he really wants the social interaction, but needs your extra help. So, thank you, and keep up the great work."

Jessica, mother of 4-year-old and 2-year-old

"My kids... had a blast at playgroup when they attended, their speech flourished under her care, and they made so many sweet friends. The whole family absolutely adores Ms. Anne, her safe and loving home, her children and her pets. If we could stay in SLP forever we would!"

Erin, mother of 3-year-olds

"We love Speech-Language-Play!! Ms. Anne is fantastic and we really like her style of teaching skills through encouragement, support, and lots of love and fun! It is great to see my boys spontaneously showing me the things they learned, played and absorbed at school."

Carissa, mother of 3-year-old

"My son started at Ms. Anne's school in January. We made the leap from the center school our family used for seven years. We have never regretted the switch. Anne truly loves and cares for each of her students and my son wakes up every day eager to go to school. We can't wait until the school year starts again!"

Calida, mother of 3-year-old

"My son has flourished going to speech-language-play. Ms. Anne has a natural ability to connect with her students, and they thrive with her guidance. I would recommend this school to everyone. I truly believe that placing my son here, is one of the best decisions I have ever made."
