Early Childhood Program

Waldorf Early Childhood Education classrooms don’t look like other preschool and kindergarten classrooms, and there’s a reason for that. Calm, uncluttered spaces encourage the child’s imagination and creativity.

For the young child, open-ended, imaginative play offers a way to understand the world. Through a play-based curriculum, Waldorf hones inner forces of creativity and flexibility that become the capabilities for later learning in school, career and life. Our Parent and Child, Nursery and Kindergarten classes focuses on the children’s overall well-being, including nutrition, sleep and connection with nature.

Nature Walk for Nursery and Kindergarten October 9, 1:30 to 2:30 pm

Join our Early Childhood teachers on a Nature Walk through Moraine Farm

The Moraine Farm campus offers countless nature exploration and learning experiences for the young child. The nursery and kindergarten children are immersed in the wonder of the natural world for 2 to 3 hours per day in all seasons. This nature walk will begin in the nursery play yard with a welcome circle, then we will explore the field and forest. During this nature walk, families get a glimpse into the joy, wonder and health giving qualities of nature-based education.

“Among the alternatives, the Waldorf school represents a chance for every child to grow and learn according to the most natural rhythms of life. For the early school child, this means an...environment in which the wonders of science and literature fill the day...”
