After School Care

We believe that providing a GISS after school care program is another way to enrich your child's school life experience as they have fun in a familiar and safe environment, whilst also supporting families at GISS.

“The recent announcement of starting an After School Care Program at GISS has been a real blessing for us. It will give us lots of flexibility regarding work without impacting our schedules for pick-up, knowing that our child is being looked after in a safe, familiar and bilingual environment where he’d be able to socialise with his friends and other kids from the school. I truly believe this is a great addition to the school. A sincere thank you for making this happen!”

Jan Lehnert, GISS Parent
