“Children who live in an atmosphere of love and warmth, and who have around them truly good examples to imitate, are living in their proper element.”
– Rudolf Steiner, The Education of the Child
Our play-based, experiential programs develop capacities for creative thinking and problem solving through exploratory play and guided activities. Our aesthetically rich classrooms are furnished with simple, natural materials and handcrafted toys that allow the children to build imaginative scenarios and maximize their creative capacities.
Children participate in outdoor play and seasonal crafts that support self-regulation, physical development and healthy social interaction, laying a strong foundation for later academic success. Emphasis is placed on the development of requisite skills and capacities that promote readiness for first grade. A hearty morning snack is prepared every morning with the help of the children.
