In our work, we put great focus on one thing - the welfare and education of your child. In order to properly encourage your child's personal and academic development, our professional educators follow a unique approach that combines academic excellence with a free-spirited and playful atmosphere for learning.
Our teachers regularly participate in educational seminars and always bring new ideas and input to their daily tasks. These ideas are passed on to your child in playful exercises and diligent study sessions.

Victoria is the owner of Garden City. Victoria is a long time client of our program and has come through with several foster children. As it turns out she has 4 children enrolled right now! So parents can be sure Victoria will be looking out for the best interests of the parents and of the children. She also is a firm believer in the power of prayer and that this program really belongs to the Savior. When there is a question, she will consult with hter team, yes. But the ultimate decision will be a prayerful one.
