The kindergarten is a warm and inviting place. More like a home than a classroom, the dining area has two polished wooden tables, each surrounded by many small wooden chairs.
The children help prepare the morning meal, chop vegetables for soup, stir batter, knead dough for bread. Then the tables are carefully and beautifully set and teachers and children sit down together for a hearty mid-morning snack.
Each day has its own rhythm of activities including circle time with imaginative games, songs, and movement, rest time, outside play, story, crafts, clean up time, watercolor painting, and beeswax modeling. Festivals, including birthdays, are celebrated throughout the year.
Students have specialized instruction in Spanish and eurythmy as well.
