Our Team

With education and experience in early childhood care
  • Our team consists of educators, administrators and assistants with experience and a passion for early childhood development and care.

  • As educators in early childhood development it is important for us to not only teach our future generations, but also to facilitate the optimal learning for each child we serve. GGLC encourages self directed learning and exploration, and promotes a child’s natural sense of curiosity. Our approach to childcare and preschool fosters confidence and a thirst for life long learning. 

    Our preschool staff aren’t just teachers, they’re facilitators. Each teacher has been hand selected based on their unique experiences and credentials in early childhood development, but rest assured, there is so much more to our staff than their credentials. Personality and a passion for children is a must when working with young children, and we take extra care to ensure that our teachers exemplify these characteristics.
