Great Feedback from Great Families

I took my daughter to BDI for their parent and child classes - Talk and Grove and Tumbling Tots. As a first time mom, I found these classes super informative! We learned so many things on teaching our child verbal, nonverbal communication, and small and large motor exercises that I would not have known otherwise. My daughter always had a blast there as well. And wow you cannot beat the price anywhere! The teachers are so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly! Highly recommended!"
