"The Children's Institute is a very supportive environment. You feel like if you need help, you are going to be able to get it. I remember an incident early in my first week here where a child had a medical issue during a group activity. The staff reacted immediately and without blinking. Though the kids are amazing, the people here are amazing too. It's a remarkably supportive place. Coming on board has been a really positive experience."
