We are very grateful that our daughter's first milestone in school was the loving, creative, nurturing environment of the Enchanted Garden. We will miss the joy of watching our children and grandchildren sledding, cooking with "Chef Noah," interacting with dress up play and all of the enriched experiences you provided for them and for all of us at the Enchanted Garden. The enchanting moments, treasured friends and teachers will remain in our memories always. —Jane P.

She feels relaxed and at home with you, a tribute to the care and sensitivity that always fills your space.

"My daughter has never had a bad day at the Enchanted Garden. All children are received with open arms, and self expression and acceptance are "the way" at The Enchanted Garden. From the moment the children arrive to the moment they leave, they are completely and totally engaged. Most of all, the faculty models kindness, friendship, and absolute love of the arts. This enthusiasm is contagious!" —Judy Silver
"The Enchanted Garden is a wonderful place and we were blessed to be a part of it. Your care and love for children is evident in everything you do. Your respect and wonder for their lives and interests comes through in every conversation. The work that you have the children do is challenging and meaningful. You vary the subjects, let kids raise topics that interest them, and encourage their individual passions for learning. The Enchanted Garden really is a place where children grow, where they are nurtured and encouraged. After her experience at The Enchanted Garden, Caroline was absolutely ready for kindergarten." —Julia Henderson
"The Enchanted Garden offers my daughter a loving, nurturing, supportive, accepting environment with gentle, yet firm guidance. Children learn to be kind to each other, and they learn to thrive in a complex social environment. The school's philosophy allows for her individual developmental needs while encouraging participation in a structured environment. The staff is well educated, experienced, and caring. Creativity and love of learning are encouraged. The curriculum provides children with the opportunity for many successes, building self-esteem, and the teachers enable the children to expand their world through discovery." —Pandora Howie

"After my daughter Mackenzi's Kindergarten parent/teacher conference, I felt compelled to write to you. she is doing so well. Her reading level is above expectations and she is advanced in all areas of learning within her class. Her teacher shared that she scored extremely high on the initial evaluation at the beginning of the school year before her learning there had even begun. I fell that this is largely due to her two years at The Enchanted Garden, where the teachers encouraged her natural inquisitiveness and allowed her to learn and grow in such a supportive and nurturing environment. She is creative, imaginative, and eager to learn and explore -- qualities that arise from The Enchanted Garden's approach to education. I cannot thank you enough for giving my daughter such a positive first experience of "school" and "teacher." —Kim Macko
My son is thrilled to go preschool each day at the Enchanted Garden. He has grown immensely here as a person, artist, and citizen. —Jennifer Rip Edson
