We are currently living in NOVa and considering a summer move to Cville. We have a 4 year old son that will be starting kindergarten in the fall and I am looking for info on good schools to consider, also looking for recommendations on neighborhoods.We love open spaces and enjoying growing our own vegetables. We have heard good thing about Hollymead, Crozet,and Nelson County. We plan to rent for the first year so that we will have time to familiarize ourselves with the area. I will telecommute and will have to travel to Harrisonburg and take Amtrak to DC occasionally. I am a working mama looking for a community with:
-High regards for sustainability and green living
-Access to organic foods/local farms
-Holistic/Alternative health options, alternate/no-vax friendly docs
-Good schools that think outside the box (not traditional), my biggest concern is getting into a school that crushes creativity and that doesn't value a child as an individual.
My husband and I, are looking forward to our move and meeting like minded individuals in the area. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
