Heidi Donahue of Munchkin Manor has a wonderful preschool & child care in a great family setting. As Heidi's network coordinator for nearly three years I have enjoyed supporting Heidi with goals of providing a quality child care environment.

Heidi is very enthusiastic, creative and caring. The children are very happy and enjoy their school. They are always engaged and stimulated with the activities provided.

I worked at Munchkin Manor for almost a year and I would recommend it to anyone. Heidi has more creativity and patience than anyone I have ever met. She is very motivated to spend as much time outside as possible and always up for adventures! It's a great balance between structured and free-flowing, which allows space for the kids to run with their ideas and have the room to explore, learn, and grow, both about themselves and about the concepts they are interacting with. Being based out of her home, there is a lot of freedom around field trips and what is feasible to do, which I loved! We went to OMSI, libraries, the zoo, various parks, a puppet show, restaurants, and more! Go take a tour and you can see documentation of many of our amazing projects and kid-directed learning :)

I would recommend Munchkin Manor completely. It has been a wonderful experience for my daughter. She has learned so much over the past 3 years, and has a lot of fun doing it. The days are structured with circle time, outdoor play, educational units - and there's even an annual holiday show. We're off to kindergarten next year, and my daughter is completely prepared. We'll be sad to go.

I can't believe that such a high quality school exists in our neighborhood! Heidi really works well with the kids to create a curriculum that follows their interests. They get out often to explore the neighborhood and even go on field trips. My daughter loves the mixed-age setting so she gets to feel like a "big sister" but then also learns from the older kids. She has formed some real relationships at Munchkin Manor. Heidi is just so good with children; she has a real loving & respectful way of interacting with the kids.
I love the exposure my daughter gets to books, art activities, science activities, and outdoor time (rain or shine!) While I'm excited for my daughter to go to kindergarten in the fall, I'm sad to say goodbye to this preschool. My daughter has loved the support of having an in-home childcare center, but has also loved the stimluation of Heidi's lessons.

Message from Wildflowers Preschool

Wildflowers Preschool is committed to maintaining a small group of mixed age children. We keep our teacher child ratio small (2 teachers for 8 children) so that we can offer each child the attention and nurturing they deserve. Our approach strives to: give children some control over the direction of their learning, highlight the importance of using all senses to learn and honor the endless range of ways children have to express themselves. Wildflowers was founded by Heidi Donahue who holds a Master's in Environmental Education and had a vision to create a space where children not only look forward to spending time, but also feel a sense of belonging and purpose.

More about Wildflowers Preschool

Wildflowers Preschool (formerly Munchkin Manor) is a mixed-age preschool that blends Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Environmental Education philosophies to create a unique curriculum that nurtures the child as a whole.
