When I began working at GeoKids I was looking for a place where I could grow. GeoKids opened its doors to me and my family. It’s helped me grow professionally and personally. GeoKids is like family...they have been supportive of my professional goals as well as personal. The icing on the cake? I am able to have my baby girl in their infant program where I am at ease knowing she will thrive and is in the best hands possible (after mommy’s of course).
