“Ms. Amber has been an amazing director at the Shady Grove afterschool program this year. She answers the phone quickly, knows all the kids, is friendly, kind and caring. Our daughter, Savannah, loves the program so much including Ms. Amber and all of her teachers. I hear all about doing yoga, piano, art and playing with friends. Thank you all so much for creating an after-school program where our child is so happy!"
