    Comment:  Length of Time: 3 days per week Child's Age: 3-4 years Review: I like everything about Greenwood Heights. The two teachers Maya and Patty are warm, dedicated and fun. They clearly love all of the children who attend. The space is spacious and clean with a big backyard. I also like that it's mixed age (2-4 years). A few kids dropped out last minute this year because of the new public pre-k options so they have spots available. Maximum is 12 kids I believe. Activities include art, music (City Stomp) and outside activities (they either go out to the backyard or to the nearby playground) and yoga (right now they are looking for a new yoga teacher). I and my son really love this place. It's also affordable and offers flexible hours. One thing that might be challenging for some parents is that they are closed on Friday. Recommend (Hi/Rec/DoNot) Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Absolutely

    Subject:   Recommendation for Website - Greenwood Heights Playgroup
    Comment:  My daughter has been attending Greenwood Heights Playgroup for almost 2 years and we couldn't be more happy. She wakes up every morning excited to go to school and comes home very tired and happy from all the day's activities. Patty and Maya are great - they are warm, nurturing, dedicated and fun. The space and environment are very welcoming and cozy where children feel safe and comfortable. The kids are exposed to a number of activities including music, art and yoga and the group spends time outside at either the parks, playground or their lovely backyard. I love their focus on learning through play and feel that my daughter has blossomed in this environment. She has made some wonderful friends and we've met some wonderful neighborhood parents. I can't recommend this playgroup highly enough!

    Subject:  Shout Out for Greenwood Heights Playgroup
    Comment:  I'm writing to let people know about the above playgroup. Our 2.5 year old daughter is currently enrolled there 3 days a week from 8:30-2:30 (we bumped her up from the original 9:30-12:30 as she dropped her nap recently), and she just LOVES it. Its been a great experience for us all having her come home so happy with her crafts, pictures, and her talk of yoga and music class, of the 2 wonderful teachers, Patty and Maya, and of all the friends she's made there.Patty and Maya are so loving and provide a safe and stimulating atmosphere. There are the activities I mentioned, plus a big backyard where they go and play, and a playground down the street that they head to in warmer weather as well. I'm writing to recommend it because a) we've had such a positive experience there, and b) because I think I was internet surfing for 2's programs when I found this and I'm not sure how well-known it is. Oh, and it is a true find, at only $10/hour, too!This time last year, we were set on getting a co-op situation going with neighbors and friends, but the scheduling was tough, and we decided to put Hazel Greenwood Heights. I'm so happy we did. They also hold a two and four-week summer camp that our daughter will be attending this summer too -- we are sure after a few weeks off, she'll be so dying to get back!

    Comment:  I just wanted to put in a good word for this sweet little playgroup. My daughter, now 3-1/2, has been attending twice a week for the past 7 months and we couldn't be happier. Patty and Maya are lovely teachers, very responsive, and great with the kids. We had zero transition time; my daughter liked it from the very first day. She does creative art projects, gets music and yoga classes, and lots of playtime. It is a warm, small-group setting, as well as a professionally run business -- a wonderful resource for the neighborhood!

    Comment:  Maya Marchese-Reilly is an amazing childcare provider. Before opening up her own center with Patty, she worked at the Park Slope Sports Club's childcare facility. I left my two young daughters under her care and direction almost daily. During that time she showed her creativity in age appropriate and educational art projects, interesting activities and read and discussed stories during downtime. My children were never bored and improved their social skills greatly. I highly recommend her.
