George School employees and the greater community may apply to have their children cared for at the center. As a smaller center, we strive to maintain low student to teacher ratios in every classroom.
GSCC is an academic year program that begins late August and ends in mid-June. At this time, we do not offer a summer program. However, George School operates a summer camp for children ages 4 and up.
The center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
From time to time, we have a waiting list for some age groups. Contact us to inquire about our current availability.
