When it was introduced in our municipality we could see the results through our parent survey results, the satisfaction surveys.  The kinds of things they’re saying are exactly what we want to hear. My child feels valued.  My child wants to go there. They’re having a wonderful time. Yes, they learn something and that’s part of it, but more important is how they’re learning it. Because it’s how they’re treated, how they feel, how they’re valued in a program that actually allows them to learn better, accomplish more and feel good about themselves.
