Early Childhood

We believe the road to lifelong learning begins with play.

Waldorf education celebrates and builds upon the natural wonder, curiosity, and imagination of young children, nurturing students we look forward to knowing for years to come. Young children need time to explore and experiment in a safe environment with responsive adults. This feeling of safety and connection is what allows children to have fun and open up to new discoveries. Through close listening and observation, our teachers come to understand the unique interests, needs, and personality of each child.

Days in our early childhood programs have a rhythm of structured and unstructured activities that feed developing minds and bodies. At the same time, these activities nourish the social and emotional needs of children making their first friends and discovering independence. Free play, practical work, song and story offer multisensory experiences and build foundational skills for mathematics, sciences and language. Cooking, gardening, movement and outdoor exploration create opportunities to count, classify, measure and observe nature, leading to a genuine curiosity for learning and wonder. All of these opportunities help the children establish a healthy, balanced foundation for life.

For our youngest children we cultivate a beautiful, harmonious environment that encourages learning through doing, engages motor skills, evokes wonder, and gives young children the freedom to follow their natural curiosity. In our experience, this is a path that creates life-long learners.

Parents go through a simple application process to enroll a child in a nursery or kindergarten class.
