” Emma was just assessed by her new school due to her birth date which is after the cut-off. She wouldn’t normally be on Grade 1 but was recognized as a year or two ahead for Math and Reading. It’s hard to believe that two years ago when Emma started at VINCI for PreK, she was barely recognizing her own name! Thank you, VINCI!” – by Emma’s Dad
