Greenspring Montessori School hosted a ceremonial Groundbreaking on Wednesday, June 8, 2016 for a building project to renovate nearly 30,000 square feet and construct 7,500 square feet of additional classroom space on its historic seven-acre campus.

Students, parents and staff dug in with their shovels, ceremoniously marking the beginning of this transformation. Originally known as Emerson Dairy Farm, the iconic white barns and silos have been an important part of the Greenspring history since the 1920’s.

Currently home to over 250 children, toddler through grade 8, Greenspring Montessori School is committed to its mission of “igniting purpose and voice in a fully engaged learning community.” True to the Montessori philosophy, the upcoming building project will provide thoughtfully designed classrooms with free access to outdoor space, community kitchens, and child-sized features such as cabinets, sinks, toilets, and more.

The school is compelled to complete this renovation to improve its beloved but aging facilities to be safer, healthier, and more environmentally-friendly, with buildings reimagined to fit the school’s growing needs. This collaborative effort will provide lasting benefits – social, developmental, academic, physical, and financial – that touch every member of Greenspring Montessori School’s community.

The school has established a hardworking and determined Capital Campaign Committee to raise $3.0 million to offset the estimated $7.0 million total cost of constructing an exceptional Montessori environment. The success of the Campaign will be testament to Greenspring’s spirit and ability to work cooperatively toward a solution.
