Introduction to Waldorf Early Childhood
Saturday March 23rd
Visit our campus in the redwoods and learn all about our preschool and kindergarten programs. Adults only with the exception of babes in arms.
The Waldorf approach offers a developmentally appropriate, experiential, and academically rigorous education. Waldorf schools are designed to develop confident human beings who have the curiosity, discipline, and tenacity to meet the ever-changing challenges of our world. Teachers in Waldorf schools are dedicated to generating an inner enthusiasm for learning within every child. The result is children who are confident, who understand the benefits of cooperation, and who can envision and passionately take creative ideas through fruition.
“You will not be good teachers if you focus only on what you do and not upon who you are.”
