“My children and I always look forward to our Wednesday afternoons with Willoughby! The kids enjoy eating lunch with Ms. Marilyn and all of their classmates. Such a wonderful opportunity for the parents to bond as well. Ms Marilyn makes learning fun. She engages the children with hands on activities, books, singing, dancing and even a snack that reinforces the weekly theme. It is always exciting to pick out a backpack to take home for the week. They are filled with books, puzzles and stuffed animals.
Thank you for sharing your gift of teaching and your love of reading with my family Ms Marilyn!”
-Gretchen Ledet (mommy of 2 avid readers)
