Nursery/Kindergarten programs are a bridge
between home and
the young child (ages 3-6).
Children of this age learn primarily through
play and imitation. The Waldorf environment fosters the child's
capacities for imagination and creativity. The rhythms of the day,
week, and seasons provide a structure within which the child gains a
secure relationship to the world. We work with raw natural materials
for a true education of the senses. Creative play, storytelling, circle
time, and artistic activities provide a balance between the free,
creative expression of the child and the teacher-led group experience.
Each of our three mixed-age Nursery/Kindergarten classes (Rose, Sweet
Marigold) is led by one teacher and one assistant.
The children range in age from 3 to 6 years old, with a maximum of 22
children in the classroom each day. Classes are held
Monday-Friday from 8:30 am-12:30 pm. We offer 5-day and 3-day
(Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday or Wednesday-Thursday-Friday) attendance
is available by reservation daily.
