  • "Our family will forever be grateful to The Kennedy Center's Birth to Three staff for the amazing progress that our son made. Through their hard work and dedication, he reached many new milestones and developed new skills that have enabled him to continue learning. It is no exaggeration to say that The Kennedy Center changed our lives."
