 WHAT THE SUPPORT WORKERS SAY ABOUT LITTLE DRASTIC

The excitement of attending Little Drastics was sometimes too much. I was able to witness one child go from being so shy they couldn't speak in week 1; to week 5, where they ran so fast from the car to get inside and have fun, that they left their shoes in the car.- Tracey Hollis, CNAPY Team Leader WMB
