"When we discovered that our sweet baby had special needs we never imagined being able to leave her with anyone. From the first night we left her at Friday's Kids we knew she was in good hands and would be well taken care of. How wonderful it is to be able to have a date night and let her have a play date at the same time!" said Christina, parent of a child in Friday's Kids Program.
