Think about staying at GLCDC for Kindergarten

We are considering offering Kindergarten here at Great Lakes Child Development Center. If your child is in Pre-K this year, let us know if you would like to keep your child at GLCDC for Kindergarten. The class would be taught by one of our Pre-K teachers, Miss Benni. She is a fully-certified primary teacher who taught Kindergarten at St. Dennis School. Please let Miss Benni or Miss Kristie know if you have an interest in Kindergarten.
