THE PANDEMIC HAS AWAKENED A SENSE OF ATTUNEMENT WITHIN ME  REGARDING THE EDUCATION SERVICES MY CHILDREN ARE RECEIVING AND HOW THOSE SERVICES ARE IMPACTING  MY KIDS. THAT SAID, I FEEL EASE AND CONTENTMENT WHEN I DROP OFF MY KIDS IN THE MORNING, AND  GRACE WHEN THEY GET IN THE CAR AND PROVIDE ME WITH THE DAILY UPDATE. VLA PROVIDES A HOLISTIC  APPROACH, GROUNDED IN INTENTIONALITY AND LOVE.

ON THE WAY HOME FROM THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL AT VLA, WHEN MY HUSBAND ASKED JOCELYN HOW WAS HER DAY, SHE EXCLAIMED, “IT WAS AMAZING!”  HER TRANSITION FROM THE ONLY SCHOOL SHE HAS EVER KNOWN TO VLA HAS BEEN SEAMLESS. SHE LOVES HER TEACHERS AND HER NEW FRIENDS. 

ITAV’s teachers are truly a third parent in raising our kids and an essential part of our family! We not only lean on them for childcare, we turn to them for emotional support as parents, laughs after a stressful day at work, and honest feedback about what our kids need that we might be missing.
