This is my child's second year in the Pre-K Counts with Miss Gina.  The teachers, the assistants, the staff, and the food service worker Miss Susan have all been top notch!  The program is so great for my daughter.  She has learned so much!  We've been so impressed that our 3 year old also attends this year!  Thank you Seton Hill Child Services for a wonderful program!
