It’s our goal to not only provide a loving and nurturing environment for our students, but to also provide a second family for the communities we serve every day. When you enter Green Garden, you are entering a world filled with acceptance and an eagerness to provide the best care possible for you and your little one.
Trusting parent partnerships
Building trusting parent partnerships is one of the most important aspects of your child’s educational journey. We genuinely believe that the parent is the child’s first teacher, and to have a successful early learning experience, we as educators must learn from the parents first. Our parents receive frequent and transparent communication in real-time throughout the day utilizing the phone application, Brightwheel. In this app, our parents can directly access their child’s teacher with the messaging feature. Aside from Brightwheel, we communicate daily during pickup and drop-off times and during bi-annual conferences, where we discuss your child’s growth and milestones.
Community that cares
We truly believe it takes a community to raise healthy, caring, and well-rounded children that will positively impact our future. Often, the early learning environment that your child is a part of is the first community that your child will know outside of the home. That is why it is so vital that we build a community that cares for your family! The community that we have created extends far beyond the classroom. Yearly we offer family field trips, connection nights, and many additional activities outside our regular business hours so that your family can also build upon your community and meet other parents.
An extension of home
We strive to be an extension of home, not a watered-down version of school. Offering comfortable and beautiful classroom environments that feel like home. We believe the classroom is the child’s third teacher, and children learn so much from the settings they spend a great deal of time in. Children should enter a space that is calm and inviting. An area that tells them you belong here, it is okay to be your most authentic self. Through calming tones, reduced visual stimulation, and reimagined materials that replace plastic “toys,” children learn to take care of and respect the world around them as a classroom family.
The first year of life is full of special moments and milestones. Our team of Infant Teachers is here to support you as you embark on your parenting journey! Sharing photos and highlights of every day to include you in all of your child’s growth and development.Learn More
When you enter a Toddler Classroom, you will see teachers ready to listen, learn and play. We listen to your child’s interest to create a classroom environment that cultivates creativity and provides a safe place to express themselves and explore their world.Learn More
Preschool & Pre-K
Preschool at Green Garden looks like play but there’s so much more. Our classrooms are led by the children and supported intentionally for them. We incorporate the outdoors any chance we get and ensure our teachers serve as leaders of learning.Learn More
What Parents Are Saying
My two kids have been a part of the Green Garden family for a few years now. This place is not a day care, it is more of a learning facility. Green Garden and the teachers provide a great and loving environment with lots of activities. My kids love going to school and they love the teachers. I also like the fact that the food that is provided is organic. That is important in today’s society, especially because of the use of pesticides. I also like the owner of Green Garden. I see her all the time. She is involved in the daily activities and she provides good benefits for the teachers. Better benefits for the teachers should mean more talented teachers. Overall, this is a great place and one of the better decisions my wife and I made for our children.Doug W.
As a new mom trying to navigate Covid, I was extra cautious when it came to selecting a facility that would make us feel safe but that also felt like home. We found that in Green Garden – the staff is wonderful and engaged, communicative and kind and our son has a blast every single time he goes to school. We recently moved into the older toddler program and our only regret was having to say goodbye to Miss Nekeshia. Thank you so much to everyone at GG!Marney B.
Dropping your infant or child off at daycare for the first time is such an emotional event. The staff at Green Garden really help to make this transition more comfortable. The teachers here are so kind and you can easily tell that they are passionate about their jobs. Both my children are excited every morning to go in. It makes those drops offs so much easier when your little one has a smile on their face and talks about their teachers at home. Additionally as a plant based family we have greatly appreciated their organic, vegetarian menu. They are also very welcoming and supportive of LGBTQ families. A truly warm, enclosing and welcoming environment.Aleigha P.
All three of my children attended Green Garden and we couldn’t be happier with our experience there. We transferred from another local day care facility when my oldest was 2 years old, before the other kiddos were born, and it was the best decision we ever made. Green Garden staff are caring and knowledgeable. Everyone at Green Garden was attentive to our children’s medical needs, and the directors have always been quick to respond to questions, concerns and last minute schedule changes. I am impressed with how little staff turnover they have, which is unusual in the child care industry. The teachers truly became an extended family to us, and I will miss them as my youngest heads off to kindergarten. My favorite part of our experience at Green Garden has been the unique classroom setting, coupled with lots of nature and outside time! I also loved the sense of community, with “after-hours” family activities that helped build relationships with other Green Garden families. Our children learned so much and made lifelong friendships. I cannot say enough good things about Green Garden!Christina C.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the best child care center I’ve ever encountered. They actually do put children first, they don’t just talk about it (as so many centers do as they become overly concerned with numbers and finances). It’s incredible to watch them grow – both physically and in mission to children and families – and to contribute so strongly and positively into their community. Highest recommendation possible.Jenny P.
