Great Curriculum, wonderful teachers. Yes, parents need to be involved, so expect to set time away each day to help your child. It's a wonderful unique bonding experience.

The curriculum is good but I am disappointed in the lack of services offered to a child with disabilities such as Autism. Basically I am told to do it all myself... this is not what I was told before enrolling my children. Parents level of involvement is very high.
