Testimonials

"GPLC has been such a great fit for our family. Our son is thriving in the one-year-old room and loves his classmates and teachers. We love the tight-knit family environment and the peace of mind that comes from a certified daycare center with an amazing set of teachers and support staff." -- Ellie Sherven

"Grow in Peace has been a blessing to our family. The teachers are always smiling and engaging with the children. The facility is beautiful, safe, and clean. The programs include lots of playtime and are grounded in God's word. I appreciate how I'm kept up to date on how my daughter is doing throughout the day with the Brightwheel app. We are so happy at GPLC!" -- Mandy Vandeberg

"Grow In Peace is a clean, friendly, and safe environment." -- Grow in Peace Parent

"Our two daughters have been at Grow in Peace for over a year and we do not have enough words of praise: The genuine love and care from the teachers is sincere. The meals from the kitchen are healthy and varied. The activities offered are a perfect mix between outdoor time, gym time, crafts, books, songs, and learning. The teachers continuously go above and beyond to care and teach our kids. If you are looking for top-notch care for your children to experience God's love, I would highly recommend Grow In Peace." -- Michelle and Chris

"I can't say enough about GPLC. The center is clean, professional, and safe. The teachers are patient, kind, and very welcoming. Our kids have thrived physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually at GPLC. It is a very special place." -- Becky
