Our daughter attends Horizon before and after school and our son attends RASKEL before and after school also. Both programs are wonderful! Staff is super friendly and treats our children like their own!
I feel like everyone at GCDC and Horizon have become part of my family. They do an exceptional job working with my children. I am very satisfied with their customer service as well as their program overall. It warms my heart to see them go the extra mile. I’m always happy to pick my children up and see her working on something STEAM related or creative.
Close to thirty years ago I began utilizing the services of GCDC. Being a single mom working long hours I found a place where I could leave my child and not worry about the care of my child in my absence. It was like a home environment. First, there was a warm atmosphere, next, the staff there not only appeared to but showed genuine care, for my son. Now 30 years later I can say that, that same atmosphere plus more is being displayed at GCDC. My two grandsons now attend GCDC, and the afterschool program is outstanding. The children are helped with their homework. They even have access to teachers from the school they attend Any special needs that can be met are put into place. I love how they help keep the children in a caring atmosphere, for on another. The teachers display patience, kindness and cheerfulness with the children! My children love the program and always tell me I came too early to pick the up! Thank you GCDC for being an outstanding, next to home environment for my children and grandchildren!
We are very grateful for the time we have been with GCDC. It has been a wonderful experience for our son as well as our family. We have seen a tremendous amount of growth from our child and can attribute it directly to your program. The staff is amazing and so kind and caring. You, Betsy, have always been available and supportive whenever we had a question or concern. Your willingness to work with Early Intervention was very helpful to us. The way you handle transitions to new classrooms is mindful and caring, as is your implementation of the Pyramid Model in each classroom. The partnerships and community ties you have made is very evident both in and outside the walls of the classroom. We have been fortunate to receive all kinds of supplies, including gift cards, turkeys, and rapid COVID tests, as a result of your efforts and partnerships.

The RASKEL staff treats our daughter like a family member. She's always so excited to be there and often makes us wait at pickup while she finishes a craft or activity. We're grateful for the extra education and social/emotional connections she's making at RASKEL.

Jamari and I appreciate you and all that the RASKEL staff do. I'm provided with a peace of mind knowing my son is in good hands after school until pickup. Your hardwork does not go unnoticed.
The Cribbs Family
I'd like to thank the GCDC staff for everything they do to support the families of Glassboro and for the love and care they show our kids. My children have been attending both Summer camp and after school care since 2020 and I am continuously impressed by the thoughtful, enriching experiences they have everyday. We all benefit from having this safe, easy, affordable option, right in their school building. Having some of the same teachers for years, in an industry with notorious levels of turn over says so much about the quality of this program. The icing on the cake is the grant-funded JURASSIC program that we will be eligible for next year, with FREE aftercare. But even paying full price for GCDC programs is more than 100% worth it.
As a teacher of big kids in the district, I have seen first hand what awesome programs GCDC has for older students. When our son started school, it was a joy and a relief to have him enrolled in the RASKEL program at Rodgers School. Not only did I know he was safe and well-supervised, he learned so many new things. They have a million activities to keep the kids busy without overstimulating them after a long day of kindergarten. They treat all the kids with love and respect and know them well. We feel so fortunate to have had access to high-quality, reasonably-priced, and convenient childcare before and after school.
"GCDC has been incredible through Scarlett's transition to public Pre-K. They are so communicative and really show so much love and kindness to her."
"Thank you for your dedication to our children. My granddaughter loves her days in your care."
"GCDC has been my family's 1st choice for childcare, since my niece began attending as an infant, nearly 10 years ago. Between my sister and I, we've had four young children attend over the last 9 years. We wouldn't trust any other facility."
"I can not say enough about the GCDC programs and it's staff members. I am a singe mother of one daughter and a foster parent to two more girls. This program has been a life saver to me and an exciting place my girls look forward to go to everyday. The staff are among the friendliest people I have ever met and they are beyond caring and compassionate. They go above and beyond childcare and have truly become like extended family to me and my girls."
"My son has been with GCDC since 1st grade. All of the staff members are polite and ensure that the children are safe and have a fun, but educational experience. My daughter has now started at the preschool and I would recommend the center every time."
The Forand Family
Glassboro Child Development Centers before and after school care has been a game changer for our family. The nurturing environment, dedicated staff and engaging activities have not only provided a safe space for our child but also fostered their social and academic growth. We couldn't be happier with the positive impact it has had on our children's overall development.
The Decredico-Reyes Family
GCDC has become a home for my family. During one of my toughest times, over the last year, with the love and support of this program, my boys have maintained their happy demeanor. This group of staff make the program home for so many. Thank you and I am so happy we are home.
