W... really loved your school. He's already had a few classes at this new one and it's a great fit.... I'm glad he progressed in your school and I'm happy he has taken away much from that experience that will help him as he is pushed in this new one. We all just want what's best for him and I thank you for recommending the district screening. He's going to miss your school a lot, that is for sure. Thanks for giving him good memories of his first months in school. Steph L. A.
We are very sad to be leaving Knowledge House. Thank you for all your care and support this past year. Brittany M.
I wanted to thank you and Knowledge House for everything that you've done for T. As a mother, I was so anxious about placing him in preschool, but I have loved this place from the start. I feel so comfortable with him there. I'm sure next year will be just as great but I wanted you to know how important you are, He learned a lot and it was great knowing he was enjoying educational toys while having fun. Monica G.
Thank you for a great year. I'm excited for next year and all that is to come. Nicole W.
Thank you for your time and support over the past few years. The impact you've had on my boys learning has been tremendous. I'm so grateful that we found you and am sad to go. Thank you again! The work you do is truly amazing! Ashley J.
Thank you so much for all you do. The wonderful school you've created. The time you have spent with our daughter teaching and socializing her and the quality of your care. We appreciate you. Kathleen W.
Thank you for a wonderful year! L... always loves coming to school :) Kris D.
Thank you so much for inspiring my child. Your patience and the warm environment you have created are a child's and parents dream. We cannot thank you enough for putting knowledge in his hands and guiding his exploration of the world. Many, many thanks. Thank you so much for the wonderful environment you've created at Knowledge House. Mari P.
We are so happy to have found your preschool. Our son loves it and has learned so much! Thank you for everything you do! Jamie H.
Thank you so much for your work with M. and the love you show her!Jennifer K.
My children love this school! I have a son in the "house" and a daughter in the "cottage", and both are wonderful places to play and learn! I'm always surprised at what my son comes home talking about, from making dandelion cookies (with eggs from the school's chickens) to working on his alphabet workbook. They do such a wonderful job of fostering a love of learning, as well as work on life skills (blowing a nose, washing dishes). I love everything about Knowledge House, and we're so lucky to have found it! Heather L.
We are so glad we came across Knowledge House! Our daughter loves it and we love it! I can trust to bring her here and not have a worry in the world while she is here. She is learning so much and advancing socially and emotionally. She has become very independent and works better with other children and has a willingness to help out. She is more creative and imaginative with so many of her own thoughts and ideas, and has surprised me everyday with knowledge she has learned. I am confident in sending her to kindergarten next year because of this preschool and these wonderful teachers. Although I am sad to leave, I am hoping to bring our future new addition here some day so he can enjoy this great preschool too! Carissa H. My son loves going here and has opened up so much over this past year. It is a great learning environment and they nurture the strengths of the kids. This was his first preschool experience and has been a great one. Everyone is so friendly and there are so many different things the kids can explore here. I am very happy with this preschool choice.

You offer a warm, intimate and caring environment. I've been very pleased. Many thanks. Alexis
Thank you so much for the wonderfully loving, caring and nurturing environment that you are providing - I will be forever grateful for the time my daughter was able to spend learning and playing and growing with you. Cate We just wanted to say what a pleasure it has been having you as our child's first teacher! You and your staff have just been so wonderful and provided a wonderful school experience for her. So hard to believe this year is closing, but we seriously cannot say THANK YOU enough for our little girl's first school experience. Thank you SO much for all you do! Your little school and staff are simply amazing! Kim
am absolutely amazed at the progress my son has made since beginning at the Knowledge house. Not only does he look forward to going every time, but he comes home with new skills practically every day. Mrs. Valerie and Mr. Alan are wonderful! They foster a warm and loving learning environment where the kids can explore, grow and actually learn! I can not say enough good things about this school. I am so thankful I found them!!! Ashley J.
Thank you so much for being an incredible school. My son loves it there! Jessica E.
I absolutely love and adore Knowledge House Montessori. My son is able to attend 5 days a week and he has grown leaps and bounds in his knowledge, social skills, and behavior. Mrs. Valerie is patient and caring and I would recommend Knowledge House to any parent. I can only begin to describe how great this school is and how much of a positive influence it has been for my little boy. Angie H.
Thank you for creating such a wonderful place for my son to learn and grow! I am sad for him to move on to Kindergarten next year. Your school has been perfect for him! Delynn M.
Our daughter enjoys her time at school and we appreciate the efforts you've made to create a positive first preschool experience for her. Marni D.
I have been so impressed and pleased with Knowledge House since my daughter (age 4) began preschool there in September of 2011. Each day we are greeted with a calm, beautiful environment that sets the tone for the rest of the day. Gentle routines are established to help the children transition. Each day, when I pick her up from school, she is bursting with all of the new things she's learned. From learning pre-reading skills and counting to sensory development and social skills, her teacher understands that play is an opportunity for a rich learning experience. I feel at peace knowing that my daughter will spend time with peers in an environment that encourages her to try new things and supports her inquisitive nature; fostering a life long love for learning. We are so lucky to have this gem of a school right here in Port Orchard! Jessica F.
It was a difficult decision for me initially when thinking about choosing a preschool for my children. I have spent very little time away from my kids, and want to guide them as much as possible. We decided to run into Knowledge House to get a feel for it. We walked in and my son and daughter were immediately captivated. There is a sense of beauty and intrigue that was immediate for them. I could see them moving from area to area just waiting to explore everything there was to offer. Missing were the loud plastic colors and chaos that typically bombard the preschool set. My kids cried to go to school the entire way home, and I knew this was the place for them. Each day I pick them up we are greeted by the City Hall’s bells playing a song. They kids are sometimes found watering the garden, or in the school house reading a book. They are always excited about their day, proud of their school, and eager to return. With excitement about the worm composter, school friends, getting snacks for themselves, art projects, playing music, playing with the sand box, and robots, I can tell they are also being introduced to the fundamentals of education. They are discussing counting, pointing out shapes, and asking more and more about letters. Their self-awareness is developing into one of responsibility and interest. They are more aware of what they are capable of doing, and are given the opportunity to build on this effortlessly and with confidence. They love their school. I feel confident this is a great atmosphere for them to develop both academically and personally. Valerie is doing a fantastic job with my kids. Jamie O.
