Meet our wonderful staff!

 

At Geneva Children's Center, we are proud of our staff, all of whom are uniquely qualified educationally, come to us with years of experience and are mature Christians.  Perhaps most importantly, they see teaching young children as not just a job, but as a calling.  We are blessed to have each an every one of them as part of the GCC family.
