The playground committee “Green Peas” at the Ottawa Montessori School passed along some delightful thank you notes from the children.  These are truly inspiring words from the kids, and of course we love the artwork.

School staff emailed us that “the children in the elementary yard are far more active than they were in the past. They are also using the whole yard for play, whereas before 90% of the play happened in 10% of the yard.”

Happy kids, happy staff, and of course we are happy too!

See some of the “thank you” notes.
