AN EXCELLENT FACILITY There are not enough good words to say about Country Grove Children's Center (CGCC).

Reference Accounts:

Diana clearly understands the difficulty in  "initial child / parent separation"  when a   child first attends the program.     Many of the  accolades  that  CGCC receives, refer just to this point.  We offer the flexibility in trying out a particular      program (free of charge)  prior to enrolling your children.    If deemed too early for this separation, a later attempt can    easily be made.
