We honor the special developmental process of Preschool and Kindergarten ages and hold off on more formal academics until the child exhibits readiness, especially physical signs of readiness, for academic and intellectual activities. Waldorf Preschool allows children to come to self-consciousness at their own pace, building a solid foundation of physical health.
The Santa Cruz Waldorf School has one Preschool and two Kindergarten classes. The Kindergarten classes serve children from 4 years 9 months to 6 years of age. The Preschool class is a mixed-age group, ranging in age from potty-trained 3-year-olds to Kindergarten entrance. The classes all have one lead teacher, and classes with more than 12 children also have an assistant.
