Tayler was born at 26 weeks with a grade four brain bleed. The doctors told her parents that she would probably never walk or talk due to her prematurity. Tayler started at UCP’s Butterfly Learning Center (BLC) when she was five months old. Today Tayler is four years old and knows her colors, numbers, and shapes. Despite having some developmental issues, she acts like many other four year olds and lights up a room with her energetic personality. Lynette Simpson, Tayler’s mom credits her daughter’s success to the Butterfly Learning Center. She said, “BLC has taught Tayler how to talk, walk, eat, play, run, and jump and I am very grateful that she has learned so much. BLC has truly changed our lives and gave us hope for Tayler!”
