Exploring the World Around Us

Our school is situated on two acres of wooded land on Birch Mountain. This natural setting offers a unique educational experience that allows children to explore and engage with nature. They enjoy both indoor and outdoor playing areas, as well as a swimming pool.

Led by our caring and dedicated staff, we facilitate a variety of hands-on activities that provide children with the opportunity to discover new subjects and interests. From daily arts and crafts to math and science activities and more, children can learn something new every day.

Ryan Orsini

Owner/Director of Birch Mountain Day School

My sisters and I grew up in the farmlands of South Glastonbury. We always found ways to get outside and be active. Those are memories I will cherish forever. My parents showed us the importance of independence and education. After high school, I started looking for work and found myself in a position to work in childcare. From the moment I started, I knew this is what I wanted to do. I wanted to help children have a childhood similar to my experience. To create long lasting memories.

Megan Osborne-Godi Memorial Scholarship

Birch Mountain Day School created a scholarship named after Megan Osborne-Godi, who worked at the school for several years and was an inspiration to many. The scholarship is awarded to a chosen individual who cares for children in an educational or nursing setting.

“As our grandson gets ready to go off to Kindergarten, we wanted to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt “Thank You” for all you have done for him. He has come so very far in his social, emotional, and academic development. We are amazed at how much has learned and grown.”

-Rosemary & Andy T.

“It has been a pleasure watching our girls learn at BMDS. Their confidence in themselves as well as their acceptance and compassion for others is something we take enormous pride in, and your programs always helped to foster those traits.”

-Neal & Melissa B.

"We love Birch. We have been with them since my daughter was a 3 yr old in preschool through now, and she is 8 yrs old going to summer camp there. They have helped us through Covid when my daughter was beginning kindergarten by always making things as easy as possible for parents and kids with their flexibility while maintaining a safe environment. They are the best and we love the people that work there!"
