Welcome to Growth, Learning & development Center aka GLAd Center! We take pride in our ability and commitment to offering the best and highest quality care for your child(ren). We believe that cooperation and communication are key ingredients to assisting us in our endeavor to providing the highest level of care and therefore strict adherence to policy and procedures noted in the parent handbook as well as state and federal regulations are required among all staff, parents and caretakers. We greatly appreciate the confidence you have placed in us when it comes to the care of your child(ren) and therefore we will do our utmost to ensure that he/she is given a nurturing, friendly, educational, and above all, safe environment to grow in. With so many childcare providers to choose from we consider it a privilege that you chose us. “You’ll be GLAd you chose us”. You have made a very important decision in choosing childcare for your child(ren) and we thank you for choosing us!
We believe that children should be provided with life lessons as well as educational tools needed for school. Your child will receive lessons that will encourage thinking ability, such as learning to share, how to get along with others and stranger danger. This will help them develop into smart and confident children. We also believe that it is a right for children to receive good quality childcare in a safe environment and our goal is to ensure that their rights are honored.
