"Our daughter has attended Gilden Woods since it opened last November and we have had the most wonderful experience there. As a preschool teacher with my Master's in Early Childhood Education, I have extremely high expectations - and I can honestly tell you they have all been far surpassed. Words cannot express how thankful I am to know that my daughter is being loved and cared for so genuinely while I am away at work."
