    "My son grew and blossumed as a preschool child at The Walden School. In the loving hands of nurturing teachers he was encouraged to be independent and respectful. They carefully fostered his inate Love of Learning. As an elementary student he is confident and successful and takes responsibility for his learning. He is a considerate community member and conscientious about his environmental footprints. He is able to speak his mind in a way that values and respects the rights and needs of others. As a parent I am relieved that I can be a partner in his learning. The teachers value the hom and school connection and encourage communication. We have both benefited by being part of the Walden family."

    "My almost 3 year old son LOVES going to school everyday. While he is on the young side to be in this full-time Montessori based learning environment, the loving care and support he is given each day has made his transition to full time school a happy one. I cannot say enough about the teachers. The fostering of his independence has opened my eyes to what his true capabilities are. He has grown so much from being pushed to try on his own first. Furthermore, he has grown in that he is comfortable to learn from and receive help from classmates as the multi-age classroom promotes students helping each other within the warm classroom community. I cannot say enough about what this year has done so far for my son. All my early concerns regarding his being on the young end of things have been completely alleviated by this wonderful school."

    "There is no better educational option in the Delaware County area than this wonderful place of authentic learning. Walden offers top notch academics in a safe and respectful environment that promotes amazing social and emotional development for children of all ages. These teachers inspire children to be capable, caring problem solvers and independent thinkers. I have visited every public and private school in the area and there is truly no comparison. Walden is the most well rounded, positive school I have seen."

    "The good: My child loved going to this forward thinking school. I once found my her preschool class teaching meditation. The school encourages independence in all tasks. The bad: I felt the independence verges on neglect when it came to basic needs such as opening food containers and help with the bathroom. I told them before registering that my child was not fully potty trained, but staff encouraged me to enroll her anyway, downplaying my concerns and advised me to send her in a pull-up. I wrongly assumed this meant she would be getting some help in the bathroom. When school started her teachers informed me they would not give any assistance even reminders or help pulling up pants- that was not their job. I picked her up many times to find her soaked with urine (wearing underwear at that point)- no one noticed. Sending my daughter there with the understanding that a pull-up was okay was completely misleading. The parking lot is dreadfully small, making drop-off stressful. The flow of cars is chaotic and dangerous. Often had to park in the street. The playground is not fenced, they use the adjacent public playground which could allow a young child could run away easily."

    "It never ceases to amazing me all the wonderful things that are happening at Walden. My nephew, who is now a tween, started attending Walden in Preschool. Throughout the years, Walden s skilled and dedicated teachers have provided an environment that builds his confidence, feeds his curiosity, and makes him eager to learn. Walden has played such an important role in making him the person he is today."
