School Reviews

We moved to GCDS after not being satisfied with our former daycare/preschool. GCDS has taught my 4 year old to read and my two year old can count with a purpose. They have fun but are still learning extremely fast! My children do not have any learning issues such as ADHD, dyslexia, etc. Sure there are cheaper options but you get what you pay for. Best decision we ever made.
