Matthew and his family are one of the countless Anchor Center success stories. With over 3 decades of service, we have helped thousands of children reach critical early childhood milestones, with many of our students catching up developmentally to their peers with full vision. Equally as important, Anchor Center has helped thousands of families gain knowledge, skills, and confidence to support their child's life in exploration and education.
