About VGDS

Great Falls Village Green Day School was founded by the Simmons family in 1979 and has served as a  community school ever since. Our beautiful facility has spacious classrooms, a sensory porch (for three seasons covered, messy, sensorial play), promethean (smart) boards, an art room, a library, a commercial kitchen, a cafeteria area, and a bright multi-purpose room for indoor play, music, fitness and various whole school programs. The School sits in 4-acres of beautiful grounds which have been certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a School Yard Habitat. We have a tot lot, a large playground with age-appropriate equipment, a baseball field, a soccer field, a basketball court, and an adventure playground. With its warm and nurturing staff, Great Falls Village Green is proud to be the place “Where Learning Feels Like Family.”
