It Takes A Village


Storyteller Children's Center is the perfect example of the phrase, "It takes a village to raise a child." In fact, this is exactly what makes us so successful. Storyteller is made up of a highly motivated team of teachers, staff and volunteers who provide everything from exceptional therapeutic and educational services such as case management, behavioral support therapy, health and dental screenings, speech and language therapy, and fundraising activities.
