Both adults and children are very respectful. This is viewed by the people involved as more than a service. Everyone is appreciative and enthusiastic. The children are energetic and well-behaved. I have no concerns for the safety of the building The program is very organized and compassionate.

It feels safe here. (Girl, age 10)
My children love attending The REAL Program and look forward to it every year. REAL is a place where children can learn while having fun; REAL is where friendships are made. REAL is home.
