Preschool & Kindergarten: Open for Outdoor Education
We are reopening this Fall with an Outdoor Preschool and Kindergarten!
Nature Based Waldorf Education
Our school days will be spent primarily outdoors following the wisdom and knowledge of Waldorf education’s tradition of forest and farm kindergartens. Our lead teachers will provide rich opportunities for arts, crafts, and purposeful work. Daily offerings of artistic activities like painting, finger knitting, beeswax modelling, sewing, crafting, nature crafts, and woodworking will be cornerstones of our program, as will story-time and movement journeys. Our curriculum will be further enriched by purposeful work such as raking, sweeping, gardening, planting, and more. All of this will be rooted in a robust outdoor experience which is proven to increase, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
Highland Hall's Outdoor classroom environment
Our preschool and kindergarten program will utilize our outdoor play yards, which are lined with beautiful gardens, rolling hills, and plenty of shade trees, as well as ample space for running, digging, gardening, swinging and climbing. We have well-designed play structures and quiet, shaded sand boxes which provide a balanced outdoor play environment. Our students will also enjoy Highland Hall's 11-acre campus for further exploration, and spend significant time in the shade of our 1-2 acres of woods.
