Morning Song School

What Parents

Are Saying

“I am a kindergarten teacher at the Greenwood School in Mill Valley, and have been receiving children from Linda’s Morning Song School program for the past 10 years. The children are happy and strong, consistently able to access their own imagination for healthy play, are open to and interested in others and the world, and are sweet and unspoiled. The parents who come along with the children have a solid grounding in Waldorf developmental philosophy, have good habits that support their child’s healthy development, and are grateful to Linda for her beautiful work.” Peggy R.

“The school provides so many wonderful things; great structure, inquisitive independence, love of nature, love of cooking, love of learning, community spirit, cognitive development, gentle play, strong boundaries, freedom of expression. Incredibly balanced.” Matt S.

“What a blessing Morning Song is. Thank you Linda and all. Your school has been an inspiration for our son Rory and our family. He feels deeply loved and guided and we are incredibly thankful for the generous spirit that has been bestowed upon us and all the children.”

“We were looking for a smaller preschool program with a low student to teacher ratio, and were incredibly lucky to find Morning Song. Morning Song provides a nurturing environment, and fosters cooperation and respectful socialization between the kids.” Tara G.

“Linda and Adiyna are caring, nurturing and everything you would want in teachers. We have noticed that Juniper is calmer, more polite and more curious and creative than ever before since she started. We are so grateful that we found this spot and we cannot recommend it enough!” Jeniece P.

“Our daughter thrived at Morning Song and was always welcomed with loving arms by Linda and her assistants. She very much appreciated the ‘nature day’ exploring local parks, baking bread, making art, singing songs, playing fun games, and being around sweet doggies.” Sam S.

“The weekly routine is predictable and comforting for the children; each week they bake bread, make soup, paint, etc. and our son eagerly anticipates each of these activities. I would highly recommend Morning Song – I wish I could have gone to a school like this!” Allison B.

“This school us been such a wonderful place for my 3year old daughter. We were previously at a larger busier school and the loud noises and constant transitions wasn’t a good fit for my little one and she was becoming withdrawn and stressed.” Jennifer P.

“We found Morning Song after my daughter struggled at another larger preschool program. We were looking for something small, with a great student-teacher ratio as well as a warm & welcoming environment. Our oldest daughter has thrived at Morning Song and has grown into a confident and creative little girl. We’ve also noticed our daughters’ relationship has improved by being together in such a loving, calm setting. We have really enjoyed Morning Song and plan to send our third baby there next year.” Menden K.

“My children LOVED attending this amazing, little gem of a school! This was their place of wonder and imagination that they never wanted to leave. I also met the greatest parents here too, which forged wonderful relationships.”

“The program provides a nurturing & loving space where children can use their imagination to create and play while learning to love & respect others, the environment, and themselves. Thank you Linda and all the Morning Song teachers!” Robin F.

“Linda and her staff are incredibly kind and have very healthy boundaries with the children. I have seen several other shy children come to the school and blossom into self confidence.” A B.

“The snacks provided are organic, and there are field trips to special places where the children can participate in farm activities like milking goats. There are other wonderful seasonal offerings from the natural world throughout the year.” Tei G.

“Linda was not derailed by our son’s inability to verbalize but cued in on his non-verbal communications and immediately engaged with him. Linda joined the therapy loop (parents, teacher, therapist) wholeheartedly, never marginalized him, and has helped him maintain his confidence and patience.”

“As much as we liked it in advance of attending, we had no idea the incredible impact Linda would have on our son, and in turn our whole family. Our son attended morning song for 3 years. What Linda awakened in him was a sense of imagination, love of people, and love of learning that he carries with him to this day (he is now in fourth grade).” Steven K.
