First Congo is a magical place to our two children (one current student, one alumnus). The teachers are the heart and soul of the school and they continually strive to keep the school special in so many ways by ensuring that each child is given a unique and meaningful experience during their time at school.

You can tell that each teacher is totally present in the moment as they interact with each child – the teachers listen more than they talk. Children are able to learn and grow in a supportive and positive environment that recognizes the learning power of mistakes. The school offers excellent parent education classes, which are helpful to thinking deeper about the parent that you want to be. The community is welcoming and friendly to newcomers. We are so grateful for having found First Congo.
