"We are so thankful for the NCE Little Rockets Program.  We have had our daughter in a few schools and now we feel like we are home."

"As new parents, we were nervous to send out daughter to daycare for the first time but we have been so happy and grateful for this experience. I know she is well cared for and shows how much she enjoys it by the look of excitement she has when we walk into the daycare each day.  It is easy to see how the Little Rockets staff "get" her and all of her quirks which makes us feel better as well."

" We have been thrilled with the Little Rockets program for our son!  He has thrived since he started, and the staff have worked with him and supported us on all areas of his learning and development.  He is happy and excited to go to school every morning, and it has helped make the transition easy for us.  It's wonderful that Needham Public Schools offers a program like this to support their staff members in balancing their careers and families."
