"Since the age of two, I have yearned to start school. My parents moved countries so that their children could have the education they never received. We packed our bags and moved to Sandy Springs where my parents started looking for preschools. Luckily my mother was able to find Los Niños Primero and I am forever grateful we stumbled upon a wonderful program where I was able to flourish into the woman I am today!" - Rosa
