Our Parents

  • ‘Parents Who Know the Key to Education is Love.’

    It goes with out saying, that as a loving and caring parent, you know that ultimately – your kids are your responsibility. So having to trust someone else to care for your child during the day is a huge decision. And it’s not just about finding someone who is responsible, but finding someone who is as close to ‘You’ as possible. Someone who understands and knows what You would do when your child is happy, sad, pensive, hungry, cold, hot, tired, exuberant – etc., etc., etc. The answer can be summed up with one word, and only one word – each and every time – love.

    Selfless benevolence. Sacrifice. Service. It’s taking no thought of yourself nor what the cost of energy, effort or expense maybe – and immediately doing what is in the best interest of the child. To consistently show them and reinforce that they are cared for, adored, appreciated, wanted, special – that they are loved. Everything from our voice inflection, to our body language, to the look on our faces, to how we take their hand and how we hold them – must scream of safety, acceptance, joy, trust – love.

    And therefore, before working with your child alone, each and every GV Learning Center Certified Educator has demonstrated their ability and commitment to love each and every child, according to the following:

    Love endures long and is patient and kind.
    Love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy,
    is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
    Love is not conceited or arrogant and is not inflated with pride.
    Love is not rude nor unmannerly, and does not act unbecomingly.
    The love He has placed in us does not insist on its own rights,
    nor its own way – for it is not self-seeking.
    Love is not touchy or fretful or resentful,
    and it takes no account of any evil done to it
    – nor does it pay attention to a suffered wrong.
    Love does not rejoice at injustice or unrighteousness,
    but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
    Love bears up under everything that comes its way,
    and is ever ready to believe the best of every person.
    Love’s hopes are fadeless under all circumstances,
    endures all things without weakening- is long suffering.
    Love never fails, it never fades away or becomes obsolete
    for love has no end!

    1 Corinthians 13

    We at GV Learning Center have embraced this truth and is the very essence of everything we do. For a child cannot excel and grow mentally or emotionally if they do not know and experience love. And our parents don’t just know this – they demand it – for it’s their precious little child who deserves nothing less. For it is love, that provides the very foundation that allows a child to feel safe and protected, that allows them to trust, that enables them to receive instruction from the talented educator – that results in your child learning. And all those wonderful events happen, because ‘the key to education is love!’
