The program was well spent, the instructors were professional and attentive. Even in a challenging class, due to the diversity of activities and content, there is room for every child to express themselves and stand out. The concluding activity, in which the students led and guided the first graders, brought to light a process of learning and internalization. It was amazing, thank you.
