So much more than daycare. We think of Wildflower as a place that is laying a foundation for a life well-lived. The friends who care for our 2-year old are wonderful and caring, and make each day fresh, fun, natural, and social. We are lucky to be a part of the Wildflower community.

We were so lucky to have found Wildflower Cottage for our daughter. She's been there a year, and when she starts kindergarten in the fall she'll be taking with her the independence she's gained there, and the ability to effectively communicate her needs. I love how she's found such a strong voice there.

We were initially attracted to Wildflower for natural outdoor play, great location and commitment to child-driven learning. Our expectations have been exceeded! Our daughter has grown in so many ways since she began the program and she is always excited to go to school. I can't image a better program for young children.

Our son has been attending Wildflower Cottage for two years. He loves everyone there and never complains about going. The teachers are always kind and understanding of whatever the kids are going through and never over react to emotional outbursts. I can't recommend them enough.

Our daughter has been had Wildflower Cottage for a year and a half, and she absolutely loves it! Ms. Krissy has built an awesome team of educators, facility and child-centric curriculum. We appreciate the thoughtful and engaging way teachers facilitate community and learning on a daily basis. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces at Wildflower are creative. Our daughter loves to tell us about her daily "lessons", and all the fun activities of the day! She's grown so much, and we are so grateful to be a part of the Wildflower Cottage Community!

My daughter started at Wildflower when she turned three, and she's been loving it! The kids spend a lot of time outside everyday, not just at the playground but also in the woods, at the mud pit and bike path. She has so much fun, coming home tired and content.

The teachers are nurturing, loving and attentive. I especially appreciate how they educate kids how to be wholesome human beings, care for each other and solve conflicts among themselves.

We have had our twin boys at wildflower for almost 2 years now. They have had a great time there, and have really grown a lot. We like the calm atmosphere, the compassionate and communicative staff, and the positive learning environment. When we drop our boys off, we can be confident that they will taken good care of, will learn a lot, get to play and explore outside, and will be happy when we pick them up.

The feeling of knowing that your child is well cared for, making friends and learning all day long is invaluable. At Wildflower my son (4) is surrounded by engaged teachers who are heightening my son's curiosity and creativity each day. He typically starts the day by crawling into his favorite teacher's lap and listening to a story. Once everyone arrives he shares a "second breakfast" with his friends, taking turns cutting up the breakfast treats and learning how to pour his own milk. The rest of the day is spent mostly outdoors -- building fairy castles, taking honey to a neighbor's house and exploring a neighboring untamed forest. They run in the sprinklers and make mud pies, and many days they use items from nature to create artwork or do counting or letter exercises. The kids share a healthy lunch and learn table manners and are encouraged to try new things (it doesn't work with my son). They enjoy snack, which is typically fruit that everyone brings and shares. He comes home happy and tired knowing the next day he'll get to do it all over again. I couldn't be happier with the decision to have him at Wildflower. Hope you consider it for your child too!
