I love the opportunity to brag about the place that has been invaluable to the learning and growth of my two children, Greyson and Nora. Greyson is now in second grade but he attended GBKC from 20 months through pre-k. My daughter is currently in the Cricket classroom, where Kim and Danielle maintain a welcoming yet structured pre-k environment. The academic and social emotional curriculum is integrated with all of their daily activities. My kids have had some of the same teachers but they have also been in different classrooms and all of the teachers have truly been wonderful. I work in public education so I am aware of the challenges of being a teacher during current times. I can only imagine the additional challenge of working with the little kiddos and yet the teachers at Great Bay Kids do it with genuine smiles. It is evident that they love what they do! I’m still amazed that Jesse and Emily somehow know all of the kids, their siblings and families. You’ll see them in the classrooms and on the playground engaging with children. It is an amazing community and our family has built such strong connections and friendships during our time at GBKC.

Our family has loved so much having Hal in Kimmy and Gemma’s Caterpillar Class. Those two amazing teachers made his, and subsequently our, experience there nothing short of positive. Everyone from the front desk staff to the chefs to the site director had such a great attitude and always put a smile on our faces. There is no exaggeration in our family when we say we were sorry to leave GBKC Exeter and the Caterpillar classroom. We will always warmly refer other families to the GBKC Exeter center.

My Son (8) and daughter (6) have been attending the after school program at Great Bay since Kindergarten. My husband and I work full time during standard business hours. It was a daunting task figuring out how to keep them occupied and safe after school each day. Great Bay Kids’ Action Club is a life saver. The program is right at their school! There is no worry about how to get them somewhere and the convenience of that is priceless. The programs are fun for the kids. They are busy and engaged and actually “playing” every day which means a lot in this age of technology. The kids come home teaching US new games, new crafts, new ideas and they are full of stories. In addition to play they are able to complete their homework which provides better “at home” time for us in the evenings. The staff is wonderful. They are fully dedicated to the children every day. My kids trust and love each of the teachers they have there, as do I. I feel completely at ease with my children at Great Bay every day. I am called when needed and updated each day of any concerns. If my child is not attending one day and I forget to alert the staff I will get a call immediately after school making sure my child is safe and where they are supposed to be. Everyone knows how busy life is and knowing they have my back on the days I’m most frazzled is wonderful. My family is truly grateful for our GBKC family.

Our daughter has been at Great Bay Kids’ Company in Exeter since she was three months old. With my husband and I both working full time, it was so important that our daughter be in an environment that we trusted would provide the love and care we couldn’t while we were at work. The teachers at GBKC in Exeter have surpassed our expectations. The compassion, love and attention, not to mention education my daughter is receiving is incredible. At two, she knows her colors, shapes, alphabet, and is counting to ten. We are so please at how well she is doing developmentally and attribute her success to the centers curriculum. Now we have another little one and we feel so fortunate that he too will be surrounded by the same love our daughter receives. The peace of mind this provides my husband and I is priceless. We will be forever grateful to the center for all they do for our family. They are now our family too!
