Waldorf Early EducationOur work with children stresses the different developmental stages of children's growth; the inseparability of the social, emotional and intellectual components of children's minds; and the importance of children's active and experiential engagement with society.  Our curriculum builds on young children's curiosity and enthusiasm.  It is based on the understanding that young children learn best when they can construct meaning in a context-rich environment.  Concrete and active experiences provide children with a solid foundation from which, at an older age, they can build an understanding of abstract ideas.

"Nurturing the whole human being - the hands, mind and heart - is an appealing concept to my family because we are complex individuals who possess multiple dimensions and facets to our personality. Sadly, conventional education diminishes our humanity by fostering only the logical and intellectual side. It shortchanges us by ignoring our unique talents and emotional/spiritual needs. Ideally, these seemingly disparate components should fit together like the pieces of a puzzle to create a human being that is happy, healthy and well balanced."   ~Current Parent


We want students to meet exciting people, try something different, discover something about themselves, and see the world from a new perspective; put simply we want students to learn.


There is an inviting atmosphere throughout our school created by happy children, engaged families, and dedicated teachers. As a parent—the opportunity to self-select your child’s peer group, one which is aligned with your family’s values and outlook on the world, is amongst the most important educational decisions you can make.


We provide unparalleled opportunities for children, by immersing them in our working farm, outdoor adventures and a community of adults who respect the natural world.


We take the best of classical education and make it relevant by intertwining the arts with academics, resulting in a synergistic experience that creates deeper meaning. No other form of education provides for an academic experience this enriching, authentic and joyful.


We provide opportunities for children to be challenged while creating an environment that allows them to be healthy, satisfied, and productive community members.


Our school includes a 200-acre farm campus, organic gardens, and a community that values well-balanced children.
