Quite possibly the single most important and BEST investment of money I have ever spent. To see our 1 year old (yes 1 year old) toddler come alive... step into creativity, confidence, and communication... his vocabulary and engagement have been affected dramatically in the most positive sense. His respect for fellow little humans. The way he goes out of his way to engage and interact with others. I am sooooooo thankful for the referral to send him to the "Toddler Whisperer" that is "Miss Julie." She's a legend. An unknown hero. Someone that is literally changing the future generation at an early age. Setting the foundation for a very healthy (and engaging) education. I cannot say ENOUGH about this place. Seriously. The leadership. The hands-on approach. The opportunity for kids to be kids and "discover" creativity. It's such a healthy environment and offer soooooo much more than just a "day-care."

One of the BEST decisions I have made for both of my girls. My oldest always wanted to stay past her scheduled time. My youngest was shy but after a few days at school, she is now very adventurous. But most importantly, our girls amaze us with how much knowledge they gain from attending Greenhouse. Thank you Greenhouse Montessori!

I cannot say enough praises about Greenhouse Montessori. My daughter is 2 1/2 and has only been cared for by me and select family members. When it came time for me to find a program for my daughter, my expectations were high. I did not want a "daycare". I wanted a school that was going to nurture, educate and help my daughter come into her own person...not dictated to or placed into certain boxes, etc. Outdoor exploring was definitely high on my hopes list but I wasn't sure it could be a reality. I had already decided that Montessori education was the type of school I wanted my daughter to be in. When I found Greenhouse, I knew it was different. I was still nervous but immediately my daughter was comfortable with Mrs. Jennifer (and that doesn't come easy). She had an immediate bond with her and I knew I could trust her with my most precious treasure. They have a music program and animals that come to the school for the children to learn about. I finally found the place I feel comfortable leaving her and that she is excited about going to. Amazing school, teacher, philosophy, values and love for the children!!

My grandson is in his second year at Greenhouse. He has made incredible growth academically, socially and emotionally. His teacher is nurturing and knowledgeable in Montessori philosophy and child development. The environment promotes exploration in practical life skills, science, math and reading. My grandson has developed into a confident learner through his teacher's guidance. He loves school and is excited to go each day.

I cannot begin to express my love for this school. My child has been at Greenhouse for 4 years. We were fortunate to have been able to participate in the school as a charter which gave us a private school education tuition free. As the charter will be no more, we are thrilled to continue on as a PRIVATE elementary. The experiences, small classes, personal attention are unmatched. I love the enrichment opportunities, going outs, field trips, outreach programs, academics, outdoor learning, and dedication this school offers my child and our family.

Best school I could have found for my children. The environment is warm and inviting. They children are taught to encourage and aid one another. They are given opportunities to work in the outdoor environment as well as the indoor. In true Montessori form, Greenhouse as provided a space for children to grow and learn at their own time, with guidance and care. What Jennifer has done with this school is pretty awesome. We are lucky to be apart of it.

If you have a child who sings, you might want to consider a choir school. In the United States, most of these schools are day schools.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
