Many children of staff attend Children’s Village — including my three!
The Nutrition Program introduces many children to new foods. Parents often ask Chef Bell for her recipes.

Former students often invite their Children’s Village teachers to their high school graduation.

Look at the walls filled with artwork and projects. Children have ownership here at Children’s Village.
Children’s Village graduates often return to complete required high school community service hours here.
I know we selected the right school for our preschooler. Today, he asked what 'indigenous' means. My wife and I looked at each other in surprise!
