Gladiolus Learning and Development Center provides early education to all children; while focusing on raising financial support for children of low-income working families. This program gives children the chance to read, learn and play in a safe environment while their families work to make ends meet and put food on the table. Our program helps children to develop their emotional, developmental and social skills with trained professionals.

GLAD is a safe haven where children get to experience being a child without the economic struggles and worries that rob them from a healthy childhood and the ability to learn.


GLAD has a number of wonderful annual events! Check back here often to see photos of our past events, meet our sponsors and learn about upcoming gatherings.
