SUMMER SESSION AND CAMP
Our Waldorf inspired program fosters development of the whole child- physically, emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually. It is a homelike environment that is carefully prepared for the young child.
The young child is always 'doing' and we encourage lots of work and play during our days together. We spend the morning playing outdoors in all weather, singing, taking walks, baking bread, painting, chopping vegetables, practicing yoga, hearing stories and poems, gardening, crafting and lots of time in open ended, imaginative play.
Time outside is very important and life giving to the young child. We spend much of our day outside, no matter the weather!
We serve organic and vegetarian snacks and meals. The children help in our meal preparation. We chop the vegetables, stir the soup, peel hard boiled eggs, bake bread, make the tea and set the table.We sit together and enjoy our meals 'family style' with children helping to serve one another.
