We're looking at a few for the fall:<br><br>
Rowanberry<br>
Apple Blossom<br>
HomeGrown<br>
WillowTree<br><br>
We're not committed to any one philosophy. Mainly we want a place for dd to make friends, have fun and learn how to be in a semi-structured environment.<br><br>
Any opinions are welcome! TIA <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I am an Apple Blossom mama. My daughter started at 24 months (and I worked there), and now she's 3 1/2 years old. It's been a great place to get my baby off and out into the world. She's made friends and gained a ton of confidence! Feel free to PM me if you'd like more info. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My SIL's kids went to Home Grown, they liked it, though there were some dumb safety rules, Sharon is mostly respectful and kind, and she has a great space. She met some nice local mamas.<br><br>
My daughter went to Rowanberry <a href="http://www.rowanberryschool.com/" target="_blank">http://www.rowanberryschool.com/</a> Angela Molloy-Murphy is amazing and wonderful, knows the respectful communication stuff, does lots of cool art, and yet is Waldorf-inspired. She's a gem!!<br><br>
Willow Tree is owned by Angela's old partner, Kim (they used to run Wildflower School together, and my son went there) who has a lot of great influences and a fun space...she doesn't have kids of her own (which can be good or bad, but I always like someone who has real-life parenting experience as well as teaching experience) and I never found her as warm and shining as Angela.<br><br><br>
Hope it helps!
