“My son started at Dwight in Preschool, and the program has exceeded my expectations. The focus is perfectly balanced between academic and social/emotional development and his teachers are superb.
My son loves going to school every day and his educational
growth is a delight to see!”

- Kathleen, Mom of Winston, Preschool
