Early Childhood Programs
The heart of the Waldorf method is the conviction that education is an art – it must speak to the child’s experience. To educate the whole child his heart and will must be reached as well as his mind.
All of the programs offer three through six year olds the security of rhythmic activities attuned to nature; songs, stories and circle time that speak to their imaginations, plenty of time outside playing, building with what nature provides and taking care of the garden. Young children imitate the world around them and we seek to provide a beautiful environment and purposeful activities. Older children benefit from this same pattern, along with more complex stories, wet-on-wet painting and beeswax sculpting.
We offer two (“Poppies”), three (“Buttercups”) and five-day (“Sunflowers”) programs. Our mornings run from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Our Early Childhood programs offer a rhythmic pattern of activities, including circle time, indoor play, wholesome meals, outdoor activities, and dramatic plays. Children will learn songs and stories that feed their imaginations and foster a rich vocabulary and love of language. Children will also have plenty of time outside exploring nature, building, and gardening. Young children imitate the world around them and we seek to provide a beautiful environment and a variety of purposeful activities that enrich our children’s hearts, bodies, and minds.

Young ones will be encouraged to play with the natural and open-ended toys while parents craft. Teacher will lead a morning circle with finger-plays, nursery rhymes, movement and songs.
