On our ride home yesterday, my daughter (9 years old, 4th grade) gave me some unsolicited feedback about her day. I actually hadn't even asked her any questions yet! She said that Morning Glory is a great school and that everyone there (teachers and children) knows it is a great school, is happy to be there, and smiling all the time. She said learning about ancient history is fun. She really enjoys the WAY she's learning about it. She said she loves that if feels more like a home than a school, that it is a very cozy place to be. She also said that when she wakes up in the morning she thinks, "yay, I get to go to school today!" Morning Glory teachers and staff, thank you for your work and for the positive and joyful experience you are providing for our entire family!

The small, authentic, artistic school provides a nurturing learning environment for each child's mind, body and soul. The teachers offer plenty of individualized attention. Equal value is placed on the weekly rhythm of co-curricular activities, and art is weaved into all aspects of the curriculum. The whole school participates in a monthly Nature exploration.

My daughter is a preschooler at this wonderful school. This is her first school and she loves her school. She makes bread on Mondays, there is music with movement and instruments on Tue and Wed, pasta on Thu, art on Fri. They participate in making soup for the whole class and then sit down at the table together and partake of their meal. A fresh hot simple meal is served everyday. There is lots of space and time to play outdoors. They make special seasonal arts and crafts and listen to stories. It is a wholesome experience for my child and I am very happy with the school and its teachers and staff.

This school is a great home away from home!! My child is happy to go to school and doesn't want to leave after a full day. Teacher Njeri is gentle, kind, and knows exactly what my child needs. She brings the best out of my child and truly nourishes her soul. Awesome school!

My children and I love this school. It's a whole-child philosophy, with a teacher who is both passionate and deeply gifted (Njeri.) The amount that my children learned here was incredible - possibly because of the atmosphere of joy and safety that they experienced. Now that they have moved on to public school in the higher grades, we appreciate even more the grounding that they got in the early school years. This is a gift that is beyond price - being nurtured in such a healthy environment in kindergarten.
