Waldorf Education is a successful holistic model designed to provide the right activity at the right time, allowing each child's abilities to unfold.  In the first seven years the child seeks to experience the world as a place of goodness and will learn primarily through imitation and activity. Great care is taken in planning a curriculum that fosters wonder, joy and possibility, the early foundations for creative thinking.

Sample Half-Day Kindergarten Rhythm:
