Why can After-School Care be so important to you as a parent?

The recent announcement of starting an After School Care Program at GISS has been a real blessing for us. It will give us lots of flexibility regarding work without impacting our schedules for pick-up, knowing that our child is being looked after in a safe, familiar and bilingual environment where he’d be able to socialise with his friends and other kids from the school. I truly believe this is a great addition to the school. A sincere thank you for making this happen!”  - Jan Lehnert
