Education for a Lifetime
The Waldorf curriculum forms an ideal framework for social and intellectual growth. Our school culture values social and environmental responsibility, reflecting the progressive and culturally diverse town of Santa Cruz. Children do meaningful work indoors as well as outdoors in the yard and garden. Children are taught to work for the love of work itself and for others, to enjoy the strength of their bodies and their connection to the earth and to one another.
Our Parent-Tot Program is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the classroom and for parents to learn more about the rich, developmental approach of Waldorf education.
