"I love that the children are allowed to follow their own inspiration as they grow into lifetime learners." - parent

"Green Friends has been a breath of fresh air and a wonderful experience for all of us involved.  We were somewhat aware of the Montessori approach and have been so thrilled with the progress, friendships, and confidence that it has afforded my child.  We truly could not be happier, and we are so grateful for all of the teachers, staff, and friends we've made!"

"I like that Montessori school gives my child a sense of self-reliance and confidence." 

"I love Green Friends Montessori for so many reasons: the wonderful community; it's a nurturing environment where my child is accepted and appreciated for who she is; she is thriving; this environment allows her to learn naturally."

"We love Green Friends Montessori and look forward to our children growing here through 6th grade! The teachers are wonderful, the environment is warm and cozy, and my child just feels better when he gets to play outside with nature.  He is calmer, more confident, and is learning to express his feelings. Our son is blossoming since starting school here, and is finally making new friends. It's truly a magical place and I feel so blessed that we found it."
