Hi- I am Deborah Kumpula, and I am the Directress and owner of the Montessori Garden School. Let me take this opportunity to tell you about myself.
I've been passionately involved in Montessori Education for 30 plus years.
It is our desire here at The Montessori Garden to make our school a fun and educational experience for your child. We celebrate and welcome each child, who learn at their own pace, need structure and freedom, love, respect and understanding, to be challenged cognitively and socially. I believe in the Montessori philosophy with my whole heart. My own two daughters went all the way through 4th grade in a Montessori school. I believe they are better learners and explorers because of that.
Two years ago we leased some land and remodeled the simple farmhouse on the land-just minutes west of our original school. This almost 2 acre school's main charms are a panoramic view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, fruit trees, more room to garden with the children, a playscape complete with sand box, a friendship garden, room to run, and a forested landscape all around us. Almost daily the children see deer, eagles or mountain beavers. Rabbits to care for are a part of our daily routine.
Please call to schedule a time to observe for an hour in the morning or an afternoon tour of the school in the late afternoon.
We have a on- site art teacher and have someone come in weekly for Spanish lessons.
