At Good Morning Creative Arts and Preschool (GMCAPs), we are celebrating 40 years of providing an arts-based, early-childhood program and summer camps for families in the Glebe and surrounding communities.
The preschool, which opened in 1981, was founded by a group of local parents. Shortly afterwards, the toddler playgroup grew into a licensed preschool offering morning programs for two- and three-year-olds.
We continue to offer these same programs along with an afterschool creative arts offering for children up to 10 years old with pickups from local schools: First Avenue, Mutchmor, Corpus Christi and Glebe Montessori.
GMCAPs has evolved over the decades, remaining focused on offering a diverse program that encourages exploration and creativeness and instills confidence and independence. We have thrived over the past 40 years thanks in no small part to the dedicated staff, supportive families and wonderful children who have been associated with the program. And we look forward to serving this community for another 40 more!
