My son has been attending Kids and Nurses PPEC for almost a year. The staff and therapist are amazing and caring. You can tell they really love working at Kids and Nurses. He loves coming to the PPEC and interacting with the other children. The PPEC is always clean and the nurses do a fantastic job making the children feel loved while they are away from their parents.
I like how the PPEC treats my daughter and the care they give her. I feel the PPEC is a safe place for children. The times I’ve been there, they have been very kind to me and to my child. When I need to know something, I go to them and they give me help with the information I may need. For this and many reasons, too numerous to mention, I recommend this place.
Kids & Nurses has been instrumental in Joshua’s developmental accomplishments. While attending Kids & Nurses, Joshua has been provided the major support system that every child with medical disabilities deserves. He has overcome many physical and mental obstacles that were thought to be impossible.
