GEC is an amazing preschool and school. The staff truly loves and cares for the children as if they were their own. The academics is outstanding as the children learn a lot even in the preschool program. This is a Christian school and the kids learn about the bible on an age appropriate level. The classroom sizes are small whereas the children receive the added attention they may need. If you are looking for a school that has a great education and a family friendly atmosphere, GEC is the place for you!

The school is wonderful. Everyone is very caring and loving from teachers to all staff. The children learn so much from school work to be a caring and loving person. My grandkids have been there for about 5 years and would recommmend the school to all who want that christian environment with alot of one on one teaching.

GEC is a great school. The teachers are all very loving and caring toward the children. The director and office staff are amazing. The academic shool is ahead of what's being taught in the public schools. My children love the school and the staff. I highly reccomend this school to anyone looking for a Christian education for their children.

My children have been at this school for 7 yrs now and I could not be happier. They started when they were 3, and are now in 4th grade; with only 1 year left, unfortunately! This school has truly become like a family to us and has been such a blessing over the years. They truly love the kids and it is without a doubt, a ministry first. Academically, I am more than pleased with the level at which my children are learning as compared to other children the same age/grade. My children are in a safe, loving, nurturing and educational environment that I cannot say enough positive things about. Well worth the investment!

My school is the best one. The teachers encourage my daughter to meet her full potential. The staff and administration are helpful and caring. My child is getting a well rounded education at Greenbriar Enrichment Center. I couldn't ask for a better school experience.

LOVE this school!!! The teachers love the kids like they are their own. My daughter has blossomed with all of their love and support. I would highly recommend this school to anyone with a student up to 5th grade. The fact that they are Christian-based is another huge plus for me too. I know that they are teaching the same values to our daughter that we are teaching at home.

I send all 4 of my children to GEC. In addition, to high quality academics, my kids experience genuine love and care from the entire staff. GEC is teaching my kids to love God, respect others, and value their own amazing qualities. My wife and I LOVE this school!

I love this school. My son started in Kindergarten and now is in the 2nd grade. Our goal is to keep him there until 5th grade. The teachers are great, they are so loving and they really care about your child. The entire staff is terrific, they are willing to help in any way they can.

I love Greenbrier Enrichment Center (GEC) so, so, SO much that I wish I could be a kid again and be a student at this amazing school. I am a mother of 4 and proud to say that all of my children have been a part of the GEC family. Anyone that knows about our school is aware of the honor that comes from being blessed with parents, educators and staff that are positive, uplifting and dedicated to provide a nurturing environment for the children to learn and grow in. In my humble opinion, this environment has propelled the youth to learn in a much more advanced capacity that the normal school environment. The parents and the school are committed to a higher standard and that mutual respect and teamwork is what sets GEC apart from the rest. We are truly blessed by the best!! Thank you. Chantel Smith

Greenbrier Enrichment Center is called "The best kept screat in Chesapeake" and for good reason. It's a very small school, but packs a big punch. They carry top of the line curriculium along with the best teachers in Hampton Roads area. Their love and devotion to God, Children and education really shines in ever classroom. There is no better feeling then dropping your kids off at a school they will be safe and recieve a quality education. Thank you GEC!

I have two children that started this summer and I have to say this school was a blessing to find. My son initially had a hard time transitioning from an at home daycare to preschool but the teachers were really understanding, supportive and patient. I really like that they take the time to get to know and develop a relationship with both my kids.

GEC is a Private Christian School dedicated to instilling Christian values that develop the spiritual and moral self-worth of our kids. Everyone who works there has a passion for the kids like no other. The educational programs, special events such as field trips and music programs are amazing. Keep up the good work GEC.

This school is the greatest school my child has ever attended. The staff is so nice they know me and my child by name and we are all like a family. I feel very comfortable knowing that my child is in good hands. I think the staff is very well knowledgeable when it comes to the academics for the children. My child loves it there and sometimes don't want me to pick him up. I am very thankful to find such a caring and well nurturing school for my child

This school is very awesome. My child started at 2 and was not potty trained and some schools don't allow students if there not potty trained. I will say it took prolly 2 months to potty train my child and I must say they will work with you as well. Parents, teachers, and staff are very respectful to you. They teach them very well for my child to be 3 now she knows more than any 3 year old that's not in school now and I thank that's a plus. They are 100% perfect all year around.

All four of my children have attended this school. I wanted a school that was small and they knew my children the moment that we walked in the door. My children started in the preschool and they all graduated from the 5th grade. We were a part of the school for more than 12 years. My commitment for my children was that they have a solid Christ foundation to assist throughout their life. The school requires the children to do their best and inspires them to do more. You will never find a school that will care more about you and your children.

We started at Greenbrier Enrichment as a KINDERGARTENER only. That was our thoughts because we didn't believe sending her to the public school would be beneficial. The kindergarten teacher is simply AMAZING. Her assistant that year & she worked like a well oiled machine together. We were so amazed at all our child learned and accomplished that we RE-ENROLLED for first Grade! First Grade challenged our daughter and grew her in her faith. Having teachers and mentors who walk the walk and talk the talk is amazing. First grade turned into 2nd grade which will in turn turn into 3rd grade next year. I love that when I drop off my child at school I know she is well cared for, LOVED, and challenged. When I think of the word TEAM....I think of the entire staff at Greenbrier Enrichment. They work together for the good of your child and the school. If you are looking for an amazing and challenging school then look no further! Greenbrier Enrichment Center exceeds all of my hopes for my child's schooling. WE are so blessed to call this school HOME for our child. You can't find that in most schools.

Want your kids to grow up in a loving family? Send them to this amazing school. Our two children attended kindergarten through fifth grade at GEC. Three years later, they still beg to go back to see the staff. This is a school where every teacher knows and loves each child. The academic program is challenging and tailored to meet the needs of the individual child. I give GEC 5 stars! What a remarkable place!

Does not instill Christian values. For what you are paying. Extreme caddiness within the staff. Unprofessiona!. Teacher blaims a 3 year old for making her cry and then cries infront of the parent. Repeat a 3 year old. The staff can't handle anything but perfect... Has to call you every day to come get your child. But can never get your phone number right and then want to blaim you. You pay $624 a month for them to demand to pick them up. If you can't handle a children then why have a school? Got child evaluated twice. A normal 3 year old with nurmal behaviors. Something is wrong here. Would not Rec. your child to go there. Head Pastor doesn;t care to listen. Doesn;t protect his children or parents.

My daughter has attended this school since kindergarten and I cannot say enough good things about the school. Caring teachers, challenging curriculum, Christ-centered education, Christian administrators-- I could go on and on. This has been the most positive experience for not only my daughter but for us as a family. If the school offered more grades beyond 5th, my daughter would be here for all of them. She is very sad at leaving this school family but at the same time, very grateful for what she has received here. I can recommend this school whole-heartedly and without reservation !!!!

What an excellent school! The staff truly cares for the kids. The class sizes are small and the academic expectations exceed the level of the local public schools. The communication between the teachers and myself is almost an everyday occurence. I have never felt disconnected with the school. The school offers field trips, elective classes, and extracurricular activites that exceed expectations for such a small school environment. As a private school option, it is very affordable and a real educational bargain. My child has attended this school since kindergarten and is very sad that this fifth grade year is to be the last year. We would continue in the school if it were an option. This school is a hidden gem in Chesapeake.

Wow - I am truly surprised to read the post from July. This is my second school year with GEC and I couldn't be more pleased. Can't say enough about how happy I am personally and all that I've heard regarding the high level learning for the academic school (my daughter's are in pre-school). Certainly no school is going to be perfect, but I think they are the best kept secret in Chesapeake! Highly recommend. But, go there - meet the administrative staff and teachers and see for yourself. They will openly show you the curriculum and answer any questions you have.

Comparatively the cost is low but you get what you pay for. My child spent five months there before we realized it was not the environment for us. Bullying is tolerated; many times we weren t even told. Positive feedback was rare while criticisms were regularly distributed. Rules and policies were not consistently adhered to or enforced. This was hardly a positive experience and I regret that we subjected our child for as long as we did.

This school is amazing! You and your children become part of large, supportive family. They expect a lot of our children but every kid rises up to meet the goals. They develop the whole child, mentally and spiritually. They also use a lot of hands on learning..science experiments, languages and tons of field trips. This school is the best thing that has happened to our whole family!

Children are grouped by age starting at 2 years old and going up to the 5th grade. It s a small school that seems more like a family. Learning starts early and is it made an adventure. Teachers expect high achievements from the kids. Staff is strict but there is caring blended it with it. There is not a big turnover with teachers so they tend to get to know the students even before they teach them. There is a lot of interaction with students and teachers. We have been very pleased with the daycare part of the school and look forward to entering the kindergarten. I highly recommend the daycare and the school.
