The program provides a nurturing environment for our nearly 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s. It’s a child friendly, happy place! Our school occupies a lovely cottage at Camp Alvernia known as the Pond, overlooking the playground. The classroom is a beautiful space, creating an environment that is free of overstimulating colors and designs. We provide a peaceful place to work and play.
The rhythm of each day is largely based on science, nature, art, literature, outdoor activities and music. From themes that inspire the children’s natural curiosity, we integrate language arts and math skills. We offer a strong music program including daily singing, movement and instrumentation. We also unroll our yoga mats and practice breathing techniques and learn about how the body moves mindfully, and also, of course, we have lots of fun!
The 15 acres of surrounding property offer many occasions to hike and explore nature. We get lots of fresh air and sunshine each day! We have transitioned to all natural materials, and a natural, developmentally appropriate curriculum as described by Waldorf educational philosophy. We adapt the curriculum to best fit each child’s abilities and interests.
