The holiday season is here, we ask that you keep Global's Giving Tree in mind. If you are not familiar with Global Giving Tree, it's a part of our #GlobalCares campaign and we partner with the school administration and pick five families from each school to anonymously provide gifts for during the holiday season. Our children and families join in the spirit of giving, and we are able to reinforce the importance of service and community to our Global children. A list of items of requested gift donations for each child can be provided by your site director. We ask that you bring any donations in no later than December 19th, 2022 to ensure we are able to surprise the families in need in time for the holidays.

Try using "Q-TIP" around the house. Quit Taking It Personally

Everything we say is not always necessarily what we mean. Take a deep breath before reacting. Things are not always as they seem. Ask others why they are saying that they are and how they intend you to respond.


At Global, we aim to work collaboratively with our families, schools, and communities, to provide a positive and welcoming environment for all families. We ask you to take a minute to read over and complete an ANONYMOUS parent survey. Feel free to add any other information that you feel we need to know to maintain the quality of care you are receiving, or improve it. All suggestions or comments are appreciated.
