Testimonials

WHAT ARE PARENTS SAYING ABOUT EDS?

S.O. - Physician in Belmont, MA

Evergreen was an enriching and enlivening school for our son for four years.  Indeed, we did not want to leave when he graduated from the Blue Room.  We especially enjoyed the teachers’ attitudes of openness and curiosity.  We were always welcomed in to do special activities and projects like cooking and gardening.  We are very grateful to have discovered the school!

As a parent of two and an education professional, I feel so fortunate to have found Evergreen.  My children have loved every day there, and I feel as much a part of the community as they do when we walk in the door.  The staff are outstanding and unfailingly kind, the activities are engaging and always changing, and the policies are flexible and accommodating.  I have traveled around the country visiting preschool for my job, and I can honestly say that Evergreen is a very special place.

N.H. - Belmont, MA

As a parent of two children that have and are attending Evergreen, I am so pleased to have been a part of this community for so long.  I first learned about Evergreen with my older son.  I appreciate that the teachers knew him and our family really well.  Because of our strong connection, the teachers were able to guide us with his speech delays, which at the time felt very overwhelming.  Also, we are still friends with some of his classmates, even as he is in 4th grade.  Returning after a six year gap, I was pleased to see that many of the teachers are still a part of the school and the high quality classroom experience my son enjoyed is still there for my youngest daughter.  The classrooms easily transition from one age range to the next, making tough transitions for little ones easier.  The work areas are relevant and interesting.  Again, we have found some wonderful friends I hope to still be connected with for many years to come.

What an absolute joy it has been to become part of the Evergreen family.  The professional, insightful, caring staff welcomed us as new, nervous parents with open arms and gentle guidance.  During our 3 years here, they have enthusiastically nurtured our daughter’s unique interests and needs – allowing her to emerge from a shy, slow-to-warm toddler into a strong and self-confident Pre-K’er.  We are so grateful for the individual attention, the sense of community and the emphasis on creativity, curiosity and compassion.  Thank you Evergreen, you have laid a remarkable foundation that will set our daughter well for many years to come.

M.B. - Belmont, MA

When my husband and I were looking for schools, we wanted a place our children would be safe and happy.  We learned about Evergreen Day School (EDS) and could not be happier!  My two older children attended and loved EDS – my son is now in 2nd grade and my older daughter is in 1st grade in Belmont.  My youngest child absolutely loves going to school at EDS and how she is greeted personally every morning.  Her teachers, and all of the teachers have been so caring, gentle and loving.  I recall feeling nervous leaving my oldest child on his first day at Evergreen; the nerves were gone so much sooner than I expected and I felt like I was leaving my child with family.  I cannot say enough about the teachers and staff.  They keep the well-being of the children in mind, provide every child the individual attention they require, and demonstrate and promote empathy.  Every child is made to feel special in every way, which makes them feel more self-confident and secure.  It is a nurturing, safe, clean, and warm environment.  My older children have remained friends with their “Evergreen friends” for years after leaving.  Evergreen has become somewhat of a family to us and we feel very lucky to have found this school!
