Program for 3, 4 & 5 yr olds

Program Description
At GICS, we believe that in order for your child to grow emotionally, physically and intellectually he or she must be given the freedom of choice. Each day that your child attends they will be given choices that will help them to become self-disciplined, independent and respectful of the rights of others. Our program is designed for those children that are 3, 4 and 5 year olds.
