Early Childhood and Kindergarten programs nurture and protect childhood in a beautiful, warm, home-like setting. Reflecting a deep belief that children’s natural creative play contains the cornerstones of academic ability. The rhythm of the school day flows between lively outside play with inside artistic and practical activities. In the first seven years, the child seeks to see that the world is a place of goodness. These early years are a period of joy and exuberance during which the child will absorb and imitate everything they see. Schools guided by the core principles of Public Waldorf education build a foundation for learning by honoring childhood as a valuable time in the individual’s life and teaches in the spirit of gentleness and compassion.
