Montessori school an irreplaceable resource

As the grandparent of a former student at Montessori Farmhouse school, I had many opportunities to visit the school. I found it to be well-organized, well-managed and with constant supervision of the children — inside and out.

I never observed excessively rowdy or noisy behavior by the children outside — just normal child play activity.

I did not see any residences close enough to be negatively impacted.

I know the owners and teachers of the school have invested a great deal of money, time and effort establishing this school. The quality, standards, curriculum, safety standards and environmental awareness of the Montessori Farmhouse school are exceptional and, in my opinion, it is a great asset to the Port Orchard community.

It would be an unfortunate and unnecessary loss to the community if this high-quality school is not permitted to grow.

Please do not allow this to happen. My grandchild experienced wonderful learning, behavioral and growth experiences while attending this school, and I have another grandchild awaiting his opportunity to attend.
