Fantastic school! Knowledgeable and caring teachers and staff have really helped my son blossom in the 2 years he has attended the school. He enjoys spanish and music classes, and I love that they have so many wonderful opportunities to be exposed to science. GCDC is a top rate school. I can't say enough wonderful things about it!

Enroll Today! The educational program offered by GCDC is already amazing, but the staff continues to find ways to improve the offerings providing physical activity, creative play, music and language (Spanish). We have spent time at other centers, and I can attest to the fact that GCDC is superior to the competition. We''ve never been happier.
