Open House

Bring your children to enjoy a morning in a Waldorf early childhood class. The Waldorf education curriculum, based on the nearly century old philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, strives to teach the whole child-head, heart and hands-through a play-based morning for the kindergartens and through experiential, arts-based methods in the grades. Waldorf education trusts the wisdom of the human being and nurtures a sense of connection, support and responsibility within the community.
