Parent Testimonials

Even though my son has been attending Ala Costa less than a year, I already cannot imagine our lives without it. Ala Costa is more than a program for my son‘s afternoons. It is the support system I have always wished for, with staff that genuinely care, very deeply, about my son and our entire family. Jackie, Ala Costa Parent
