“Receive the children in reverence, educate them in love, and send them forth in freedom.” Rudolf Steiner
The Chipmunks Program serves children between the ages of 18 months to 3 years in a caring, rhythmical environment.
With three experienced and loving care-givers, the children can begin to test their new sense of self, in an environment designed to nurture and support their continued unfolding unfolding by encouraging gross motor development as well as learning social and emotional skills with new friends.
The Grey Squirrels is a mixed age class for children 3.5 to 5 years old. This program is an extension of the family experience, and the mixed ages of the children add to this experience. The older children are the helpers of the younger children and they all bake bread together, make soup together, explore the world of nature, and learn how to negotiate social interactions as they play together.
The Red Fox Forest Kindergarten is for children ranging in age from 3.5 to 6 years old. With a home in a lean-to in the woods, they are free to climb, build, and explore. They have an outdoor classroom to return to for warmth, crafting, and eating. Led by two Waldorf-trained teachers who started a similar program at the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs, the Red Foxes not only find adventure and reverence in the outdoors, they also take part in circle songs and verses and storytelling as pre-literacy for their elementary years.
