Spring 2020 Update: Connecting & Learning - even when we can't be together

To our Educators & Families - thank you for all that you are doing to support students at this time. Our experiences with you and your students has been – for over 45 years – decidedly “in person." We miss you.

But we are following your lead, helping to make connecting and learning possible, even when we can’t be together. We are reframing our popular Focused Field Study programs for teaching and learning online and at home and providing fun and engaging videos and activities to help you "visit" with us virtually.

Follow us on Facebook and join our Family Fun and Learning Group or our Teaching & Learning at GCV&M Group.


We can't wait to see you again - see details below for on-site and classroom visit opportunities:
