Kindergarten

Child development proceeds in stages.  The child, until the age of seven, is developing their body and their own will as a healthy foundation for their life. “A child’s play is not simply a reproduction of what s/he has experienced, but a creative reworking of the impressions s/he has acquired.”

Children make an immediate connection to the warm and nurturing Waldorf-inspired classroom and program.  The teacher works to provide an environment that enhances the deep sense of wonder, joy and imagination of young children.

A Waldorf kindergarten program supports the development of a healthy foundation for life and a readiness to learn that prepares them for Grade One.  The task of the early childhood educator is to model wholesome work in the context of home and nature that will imitated by the child in their free play and create in them a deep connection to their own creativity, life and their will.

The Kindergarten program includes activities such as:
  • Life skills: cooking, baking, gardening, woodworking, nature walks, indoor & outdoor play
  • Artistic skills: watercolour painting, crayon drawing and crafts
  • Cultural activities: storytelling, drama, fairy tales, puppetry, singing, verses & poems, movement and seasonal festivals

The program is 5 days a week, Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 3:00. Parents may choose 3, 4 or 5 day options as well as 2, 3 & 4 half day options.  The children need to be 44 months to enter the program.  Entrance can be throughout the year.
