“Mixed Greens Preschool is a lovely learning environment in an idyllic setting.  Director/Owner Heather Black provides excellent, thoughtful language modeling for the social emotional development of her young students and she and her [faculty] work as a team to safely facilitate the curriculum.  Heather is very attentive to the developmental needs of the children…”

“…Mixed Greens Preschool in Santa Rosa, where Heather Black and her teaching team provide excellent language and social modeling in a calm and stimulating environment.”

“We are so so happy with [our daughter’s] experience with Mixed Greens! She has grown and developed as an individual and socially SO much since she started, and it such a reward for me to know she’s got wonderful teachers and kids to be with all day. I think MG is that sweet spot where she is pushed to branch out and test her comfort limits, but in the most reassuring and nurturing environment possible. I worried a lot about finding the ‘right’ place for her cautious and thoughtful nature, and never dreamed she could be so badassedly independent and happy at school. Rock on!!!”

-Jessamyn, Mama of a Mixed Greens grad & Ever Greens camper

“Mixed Greens is an amazing preschool! The teachers are passionate, intelligent, patient, and great with the kids. The playground is like a park with beautiful trees, a wonderful play structure, sandpit, toys and trucks galore. Heather the director/owner is very caring and does a great job creating a sense of community amongst all the families who go there. Being a “green” preschool was the icing on the cake for us. I appreciated that my children learned about nature, enjoyed watching the garden grow and bloom, ate healthy food, and that they had a focus on keeping everyone healthy through good hygiene practices for the children. My older son required some special help and the teachers did a wonderful job adapting to his needs. My 2 sons loved it there and we were very, very sad when we moved out of state. I highly recommend Mixed Greens Preschool!”

-Janet, Mama of 2 former students

Rochelle, Mama of a Current Student
