“There was no way I was going to be able to afford this school. I came from an immigrant/refugee household and we didn’t always have a lot of money but my mom worked hard for my siblings and I to have opportunities. I needed to do the same for Salma. In the application, there was an option for tuition assistance and I was happy to see that. We requested assistance and got a full scholarship. Salma began attending just shy of three years old. She is five now and within the first year of her attending the preschool program, her speech, coordination, and walking improved. She genuinely enjoyed attending and I loved taking her there”- Fatima, PlayGarden Parent
