Providence Montessori has earned a Certificate of Appreciation from the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government’s Environmental Commission.

One of the Bio-Retention swales

Parent Julie Brock submitted a nomination letter describing the planet-friendly reconfiguration of the school’s entrance. The water conserving bioswale rain gardens, with their lovely native flowers, trees and grasses add beauty to our campus as well as the surrounding community. Her letter also touched on Providence Montessori’s other environmentally responsible achievements, such as our Earth Day projects, recycling efforts, rain barrel and rain chains, and our Junior Master Gardeners program.
