Nursery, Pre-K & Kindergarten Classes
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Mornings, 8:15 to 12
In their first steps of schooling away from home, little ones (3 and 4 year olds) learn to work and play with others within the beautiful setting of our children's garden. Experienced teachers guide the children through magical mornings of new discovery. Activities include: outdoor seasonal exploration in nature, singing, games, story, and creative play. Each day the children participate in the preparation of wholesome foods later enjoyed for snack.

Our inspired Morning Star and Rose Kindergarten teachers bring foundational skills for cognitive learning in the best that Waldorf has to offer. Children age 5 and 6 grow in their leadership abilities as the "elders" of our children's community. While still experiencing early childhood rhythms and activities on a daily level, children also have weekly opportunities for handwork projects, horseback riding, German songs and verse, and music lessons. Our mixed-age programs offer social-emotional learning enrichment - important for the young child’s development in today's world.
