AVANCE mother, Leslie Fuentes once told her teacher, “We shouldn’t worry about the kind of world our kids live in. Instead, we need to focus on what kind of kids we are going to raise into this world.”
She describes her experience attending AVANCE’s Parent-Child Education Program with her year-old son, Joseph as transformative:
At AVANCE, the teachers tell you to go outside, where there are trees, and interact with your child. You will notice the little details, which suddenly become teaching moments. For example, you can teach your children about colors (The tree is green), size (it is big), and about its texture. Those are little things you get to teach your kids, and they’re very important. At AVANCE, I learn that it is the simple stuff that makes a big difference.
Watch Leslie’s testimonial here where she speaks about the importance of how AVANCE’s Parent-Child Education Program impacts her children’s future.
Leslie and young Joseph will be walking across the stage this spring. Both are looking forward to a successful future where they can unlock their full potential. Joseph will start school with the skills needed to graduate kindergarten, high school, college and beyond!
