"Our daughter just completed her third and final year at Bluebird Montessori. We are forever grateful for these three amazing years of building community, confidence, focus and independence. The Bluebird environment, and specifically Teri Therkelsen, have fostered all of these things and more. Our daughter has an intrinsic motivation to learn and explore that we are in awe of every day and we attribute this, in large part, to her time at Bluebird. Our son will start his three years this September and we couldn't be more excited for him!"
"I like that the younger children are shown the ropes by the older ones. As the younger children grow, they get a turn at being the leaders. Not only do both the younger and older children learn from each other, but I have seen such a build in confidence in both of my children. I love it that my son and daughter are part of the same classroom community. It's like a family."
"After joining the Bluebird community, my son went from being reserved to self-assured. Teri creates, with the children, a safe environment where friends work together to work out problems and live peacefully. I feel like he made lifelong friends here."
“With our older daughter, we were hesitant to enroll her 5-days-per-week when she was three. After she started, we understood that the 5 days was important. By mid-year, we were ready to enroll our younger daughter, even though she was only going to be two-and-a-half when school started the next year.”
