How Green Children’s House Was Started
After a stay in daycare left their son hospitalized, Danyiel, began searching for safer preschool options.
When the her oldest son was 15 months old, he spent more than 3 weeks in the ICU after developing an empyema. After the child’s hospital stay, his enrollment in several preschool facilities over the years and the birth of their second son, Danyiel and Dominique Louis decided to look into starting their own Eco-friendly Montessori School. “There are at least five preschool’s within a two-mile radius of us, but we set ourselves apart because we are the only recognized green preschool,” – Danyiel.
Danyiel have taken concern for their children, and turned it into a reality, Green Children’s House Montessori School in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Only organic and natural foods and snacks are served to students. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, overweight children have a 70% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults.
The Green Children’s House Montessori preschool currently serves students from three months to six years of age.
For Danyiel, there is a dire need for quality education. “Florida schools are ranked among the lowest in the country in science, technology, engineering, and math” she says. “I want be sure my children are given the best shot at being healthy, successful individuals.”
