I love Tharrington and so does my daughter. The teachers and assistants that my child has had have been wonderful. I know that my child is cared for and appreciated. She is excited about learning and feels safe enough to express herself in a variety of ways. I could not ask for more from the school. However, more funding for education in general is needed. But, Tharrington does a lot with the little they have. Wonderful school!!
