Our Story


Learning Garden Academy is a dream come true for Ron and Annette Soussa. 

Ron built both buildings on the award winning Pine Brook property in 2009.  After carefully designing one building to house a premiere child care center, Ron set his sights on the growth of Liberty Office Suites, the executive suites business at the front of the property.

Annette served as a Director at a Bergen County health care facility for 16 years, assisting the elderly and rehabilitating population and their families before moving to Montville in 2016.

In June 2017, the couple welcomed the opportunity to take over the preschool and set out to create a school with a culture unlike any other in the area.  Embracing a rich curriculum which prepares students both academically and socially for Kindergarten and beyond, the school includes mindfulness practices, yoga, dance, music and a strong sense of love and respect for each other (staff and students alike).  Under this new vision the school has blossomed, more than doubling enrollment in little over a year.
