Early Childhood

The mixed-age kindergarten serves children between ages three and seven years old. Considered a “forest kindergarten”, this class begins each day outdoors, and a Waldorf-based curriculum is brought within the context of nature. An indoor classroom space is used during the coldest weeks of winter, and for our afternoon extended care program. Throughout the year, we celebrate the changing seasons through song, story and special festival preparations.
