What Our Families Say About Us
“My son has been attending GSCC for the past school year and I am very grateful we made the choice to enroll him. At drop-off, I observe a consistently diverse option of age appropriate activities available for him to expand his fine and gross motor development skills. In addition, his teachers provide scaffold support in expanding social and emotional skills related to problem solving and language development. As a teacher myself, I am happy to see a child friendly play based approach to learning that is also structured. To top it off, the frequency and duration of time outside on the beautiful campus is an feature of the program I have yet to find at any other local preschool setting.”
“We feel extremely fortunate that George School Children’s Center (GSCC) added a summer program and became accessible to our family. Our toddler experienced developmental delays and has worked with Early Intervention (EI) therapists since 5 months old. We were attracted to GSCC because of their emphasis on the child, smaller class sizes, and the overall smaller size of the center which meant the teachers and director can provide personalized care. As we had hoped, his teachers at GSCC have worked in partnership with his EI therapists to implement strategies that foster his development, and the result has been transformative for our son. On top of the amazing teachers and great strides in his development, he loves his time at school. The classroom provides the structure he flourishes in and learning through play with an abundance of toys, crafts, and opportunities for sensory exploration and pretend play. George School’s campus provides access to the outdoors and freedom to explore that no other center in the area can duplicate.”
At the George School Children’s Center my child learns through the Quaker values of simplicity and peacefulness. Here she begins her lifelong education by learning through play. Children commencing their exploration of the world at GSCC develop a love of learning. Education is enriched by the inherent diversity and generous sharing of skills by both parents and extended staff of the campus. The students, parents, and teachers together create an atmosphere of friendly acceptance. The children are encouraged with positivity and treated as individuals by all members of this gentle community. My child is gathering life tools to assist her along each path she chooses. Each Friends light shines brightly at the GSCC.
