Parent Testimonial

"I am so grateful for my family's experience with Durham PreK; specifically, our experience with the Whitted School and Mr. Mabini. Mr. Mabini and his teaching assistant, Ms. Woods, created a classroom environment that made my child feel loved, while also teaching him critical academic and socio-emotional skills that helped prepare him for Kindergarten. My child had prior experiences in a different preschool that made him dislike school and feel like he was a "bad" kid. At Whitted, he was supported and felt connected to his teachers and classmates. He felt like a leader and like a child who could be successful at school. As a result, he loved school and loved learning. I am so thankful for our Durham PreK experience."
