“My son was eager and yearning to learn at a very young age. When he enrolled at Greenspring Montessori, he was able to thrive in a nurturing, self-directed environment without academic limits!”

– Lori, parent of an Upper Elementary Student

"I was impressed that the children are making their knowledge their own. Rather than being given it, they are creating it."

– Y. Kim, parent of a child in our Toddler Program

“The respect that Montessori shows for the individual child and its focus on the development of the 'whole' child has resulted in my son’s sense of self-worth and his greater capacity for creative thinking and problem-solving."

– Trish, parent of an Upper Elementary Student

"My daughter is so lucky to have a guide who hears her voice, gives her space to share, considers her point of view, is humble enough to be influenced by the perspective of his students, and offers her and her classmates the grace to repair their past mistakes and try again."

– Chris, parent of Lower Elementary and Children’s House Students

"My son is two and he is growing leaps and bounds at school. He loves it! He never wants to come home even after eight hours there. His language is exploding, he’s become great at sharing and taking care of others (like his infant sister)."

– Carolyn, parent of a child in our Toddler Program
