Project Description

Early Childhood Education

Waldorf early childhood education recognizes that young children learn best through play, exploration and imitation. These are the seeds for a lifelong love of learning, and they provide the foundation of self-confidence, resilience, reverence and future academic excellence.

Parent & Tot

Our Parent & Tot program provides an opportunity for parents to accompany their young children to a morning session filled with creative play, songs and stories. While children play, parents are encouraged to bring questions they may have and to share their experiences in parenting while engaging in a handwork project or meaningful work.

Forest Friday

Throughout the year on Fridays, in 8-10 week sessions, we open our Kindergarten class for children aged 4-6 to join an outdoor based program that includes singing, storytelling, climbing, building and free play.  This program offers a rich opportunity for children to be immersed in the natural world.

The program runs from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.  As an outdoor based program, it is important the children have weather-appropriate and temperature rated outdoor gear as well as extra clothing, including spare socks, mittens and a hat.

A nutritious snack is provided.  Children bring a packed lunch from home.

The beauty of the Waldorf school is that it is designed entirely to keep children intact until they are ready to move out into the world as whole individuals.

Kindergarten

Our kindergarten is a homelike environment that nurtures and protects the young child’s sense of wonder and imagination. Rudolph Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education, said that play is the work of children. Our age-appropriate Kindergarten honours that belief. Open-ended toys and activities encourage children to exercise their imaginations. Here, children learn by doing – helping to prepare snacks, baking bread, housekeeping and free play. Story time, handcraft and art activities along with active participation in the daily life of the class all helps to foster the growing abilities of our youngest children.

“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives.”
