Our teachers are loving and nurturing. By developing relationships based on trust, our teachers discover the strengths and interests of each child and draw on them to advance their learning. Our teachers are constantly looking for teachable moments and encourage children to question, hypothesize, solve problems, and express themselves creatively. Our teachers enjoy capturing each child’s accomplishments and posting them in our Parent blog as well as meeting with our parents during scheduled conference times or informally. 

All of our teachers hold Teacher Permits, or Advanced Degrees in Education. With a ratio of 1:6, teachers at GGG are committed to the safety and well-being of every child.
