"A place where we all grow"


Welcome to our school!

Learning Garden is a Montessori pre-school with a curriculum centered on nature studies.  The school is located within walking distance of vibrant, urban Columbia City; but it is also a working farm with chickens and landscaped gardens.  Children build a base for future knowledge through play, exploration and socializing in a nurturing academic environment.
