We knew about Fraser long before we needed their services, having a close family friend that was a founding member. So when Timothy was born we thought, of course, he'll go to Fraser. When you have a child with specials needs you need someone you can trust. That's why we turned to Fraser and why we stay.
The atmosphere at Fraser School feels like family, very warm. Everyone we see knows our son's name. When we walk down the halls, they all say, “Hi TT!”
Any parent wants their preschool to be a safe place you trust that's like home and Fraser has been that for us. Timothy is in the Ladybug classroom two days a week and also gets Speech and Occupational Therapy integrated into his day. We know that Fraser is equipped to meet all our son's needs.
The staff is impressive. You can tell they continue to learn and keep abreast of the latest methods. It feels like his teachers are watching him develop. They are right there with him.
They see what's new, and what's going on and what he needs. And they do that for all the children in their class. It's amazing.
Fraser School does a good job of building community in addition to the education and therapy they provide – Family Fun Nights, Dads and Donuts, Class Picnics. For us, Jessica's Playground ribbon cutting ceremony was wonderful. Timothy is not the kind of kid you can easily take out and about – places like the grocery store or Target. We're always seeking social opportunities. Fraser is a safe place for him to be social. So it was a no-brainer. We went and had a great time.
People think that Fraser School is only for children with special needs. But no, Fraser is a traditional preschool with typical children, and Timothy is included in that setting. That is our hope for his future. That he will be included as much as possible. For us, Fraser School is the perfect start.
