Xavier's Transformative Journey

Helping Our Students Achieve Their Best

"No one stifles his growth due to his disability," is what Xavier's mom said when sharing her experience with the West Lakes Early Learning Center. Xavier's Cerebral Palsy diagnosis is not stopping him from learning, growing and thriving thanks to his dedicated teachers. His physical therapist are able to come on-site and work with Xavier on his motor speech and behavior development, giving his mother comfort knowing he is cared for in a comfortable environment.
