Thank you so much for two amazing years. We have been extremely grateful for your brilliant and caring support. Our little boy has made immense progress. We have wonderful memories of Iverna Gardens and will cherish them forever.
Thank you for welcoming me into your school. The teachers, the children and the environment are such that they seem as though they have “jumped out” of a text book. It is people like you in schools like yours that are Montessori’s biggest achievement.
I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful school and what it has provided for my children over the last four years. I couldn’t have hoped for a more nurturing and gentle start to their education and I love how they have come out of Iverna with a sense of the collective human spirit from all your teachings of the world and its cultures. We will for always and forever keep Iverna in our hearts.
Where can we begin? Thank you for the many gifts you bring into Iverna Gardens every day, for making it the most special place on Earth for our two boys, who have had the best possible start in life thanks to your most amazing “Casa Dei Bambini”.
He loved his blue card from Iverna Gardens. We took it with us to hospital and he asked me to read the comments from the teachers to him time and time again whilst we were waiting for the surgery. It made me realise once more what an amazing job everyone at Iverna Gardens does for the children and their development. His experience at Iverna Gardens has given him such a sense of community and of belonging and has enriched his life in so many different ways; it gives him strength in difficult times, safe in the experience that there are so many special people (teachers and children) in his life who love and support him and to whom he can bring love, joy and support.
Thank you so much to all of you for giving our two boys the best possible start in life not only with your professional expertise, but also with your hearts and minds, your kindness and also with enforcing boundaries in a gentle way. We are truly lucky to have found such a wonderful place for our two children!
