"We have taken our 2 daughters to GSC since they were each 8 weeks old.  The staff is terrific, and we know our children are loved.  Now that our older daughter is 6 1/2 years, she still loves to go to GSC for No School Days and the Summer Program.  She was well prepared for kindergarten, and we know our younger daughter will be, too.  We highly recommend GSC for a supportive, loving, educational daycare center!"

" GSC is an AMAZING place for childcare. The connection they build with your child and the relationships their staff build with your family simply have no comparison.  We had two different 'stints' at GSC with our oldest and youngest daughters, separated by about four years. We moved out of state in 2010 and then back to Iowa City in 2014.  When we returned and inquired about care for our youngest, it was as if we had never left!  Several of the staff were still there and remembered us by our first names.  They asked about our oldest daughter, recalled her quirks and everything!  They welcomed back into the GSC community as if we were family.  I can't recommend GSC highly enough for the quality of their staff, care, programming, and investment in the development of young children.
