why-waldorf-rain_largeChildren love puddles. They love digging and stacking, piling and collecting, observing and wondering. Outdoor time in all weather is an important part of our education. Our youngest children start each day outdoors — in rain or shine — hiking, gardening, playing games, climbing trees, piling stones into a wall, creating mud dams, pulling potatoes on the Moraine Farm CSA.

Being outdoors in all kinds of weather goes hand-in-hand with our belief in the need for movement, connection to nature and hands-on exploration in science. And we make sure they’re “dressed for success” — that is, geared up and ready to experience the great outdoors!
