Stories of Our Impact

Sewall programs offer high-quality early education for ALL children.

“It was amazing to watch our son’s progress at Sewall. My husband summed it up best when he said that Tyler had always been in his own little world — but now, for the first time in his life, he really wants to be in ours.”– Julie O’Neil, mom of Tyler, a Sewall student with autism

“Initially, we were attracted to Sewall because of the low student-teacher ratio and the highly trained and skilled staff. But the benefits for our children were so much greater. The encouragement and supportive environment do wonders for self esteem and the exposure to a diverse population of children with varying talents and abilities teach life lessons of acceptance, cooperation and being inclusive. Sewall is an “undiscovered gem” outside of the special needs community. Families with typically developing children need to be made aware of Sewall as an excellent early childhood option for any child.”– Charon Earnest, parent of 2 Sewall graduates and Board Member

“Finding Sewall and enrolling Elliot there is one of the best decisions we have made. I am so grateful that we found such a wonderful place where Elliot has so much love shown to him everyday — by his teachers, his therapists and his peers. We have found a place for Elliot where he is not different, but just another one of the kids.”– Mary Corbett, Mom of Elliot, a Sewall student with special needs
