We believe in surrounding the young child in beauty, reverence and wonder. We are deeply influenced and inspired by the Waldorf education philosophy and Lifeways model of childcare.
"Receive the children in reverence, educate them in love and send them forth in freedom" -Rudolf Steiner
WHY DO WE SAY PLAYSCHOOL?
We believe that creative free play is the young child's most important work. Play is an essential part of the process of learning and creative problem solving. Through their play, children learn about the world, themselves and others.
We do more than just play! At Willow Tree your child will explore nature year round, join in on purposeful, meaningful work, bake bread, work with wood, learn beautiful songs, poems and stories by heart, create simple seasonal crafts and take slow walks around the neighborhood.
