"When I walk through the doors the atmosphere at CMLC- Sellwood is very warm and inviting. I do not worry about Meghan when I drop her off as I know she is being well cared for and her daily experiences are positive. I am impressed with each staff member I have met. I feel blessed we are part of the CMLC family:)." - Sellwood Parent
