At Evergreen, we believe that first years of life are the most important. There is no time when a person experiences more cognitive, social and emotional growth. Not only are children developing the intellectual skills they need for academic success, they are developing the patterns of independence, confidence and a relationship to the world that will forever influence who they are. See our website to learn more about us and why the Montessori approach is so effective at Evergreen School. You are welcome to schedule a visit, too. Regards, John DeMarchi, Head of School
