Song Garden 5

My son recently graduated from Song Garden after going to the school since he was 2.5 years old - I can't say enough good things about this school! The teachers Nina and Bryan are the most gentle, loving people who have nurtured my son and helped mold him into a sweet, well mannered boy with a love of the gardening, pretend play, music and nature in general. We are very sorry to leave Song Garden - we would send our son here through high-school if it were at all possible! I very highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a wonderful, nurturing environment for their precious child and encourage you to schedule a visit - you'll be won over as soon as you meet the teachers and see the magical space that is the classroom.

We sent our daughter here for 2 years before she started Kindergarten and I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience it was for all of us. Nina, Bryan and Megan have created a magical, safe, and lyrical space for young children to explore and enjoy. The thing that most struck me was the simple sense of wonder that she would come home with every day. Nina and Bryan have periodic parental meeting where we could learn more about classroom activities, individual development, and allow us to ask any questions or air other concerns. These were great opportunities to trade parenting tips with other new parents, and we picked up a number of great techniques. The greater Song Garden community became an excellent support network for us, and provided us with an increased sense of parental confidence. In the end we were sad to see our daughter "graduate" out of pre-school; but we are so pleased with her growth during this period and we are confident she has the skills to thrive in her future environments.

I love Song Garden. My daughter has been going here for preschool and summer camp for 3 years now. The teachers are experienced, professional, nurturing and encouraging. The school is Waldorf-inspired so there is a lot of time for creative, open-ended play. The small class size of 8 means that the teachers really get to know your child and give them personalized attention. On top of it all, the tuition cost is much lower than comparable programs.
