Meet Gahanna Early Experience Center


In 1975, Gahanna Early Experience Center (G.E.E.C.) was founded by Cheryl Ingram and Sherry Ruby as a traditional Preschool offering half-day classes for young children. Today, as in the beginning, G.E.E.C. continues its dedication to quality education and parent satisfaction. The school is licensed and regulated by the State of Ohio.  


In 2002, the G.E.E.C. obtained its non-profit status and operates under a Board of Directors.  The Board oversees the budget, tuition rates, salaries and curriculum of the school. 

After many years at Peace Lutheran Church, the school relocated in 2003 to St. Luke Lutheran Church.  The school is a ministry of St. Luke and works together with The Preschool Ministry Committee to coordinate space usage, event coordination, playground planning, Christian curriculum and items that affect the church and school together.
