Our Team

With education and experience in early childhood care
  • Our team consists of educators, administrators and assistants with experience and a passion for early childhood development and care.

  • As educators in early childhood development it is important for us to not only teach our future generations, but also to facilitate the optimal learning for each child we serve. GGLC encourages self directed learning and exploration, and promotes a child’s natural sense of curiosity. Our approach to childcare and preschool fosters confidence and a thirst for life long learning. 

    Our preschool staff aren’t just teachers, they’re facilitators. Each teacher has been hand selected based on their unique experiences and credentials in early childhood development, but rest assured, there is so much more to our staff than their credentials. Personality and a passion for children is a must when working with young children, and we take extra care to ensure that our teachers exemplify these characteristics.

      Operations/Teacher Aide

      Hi! I am Alyssa. I am from Laguna Beach and have lived on three coasts. The experience of living in a handful of states has broadened my understanding of a range of people of varying cultures and backgrounds. Each move to a new location presented its own set of challenges, which created an opportunity to evaluate what I wanted to bring, and what I wished to leave behind. From my disparate moving experiences, I have treasured the meaningful connections I had made along the way that have made transitions into new environments much smoother. I am excited by the prospect of supporting cooperation, play, cognitive, and social skills. Childhood is an important stage of life to embrace, and I want children to simultaneously feel safe and engaged. I hope to facilitate a positive environment, so children can have resonating memories which they can draw lessons from.
