Discover New Amsterdam School — Waldorf-inspired education for the whole child.

Join us for Winter Fair, Saturday, December 10, 10 am – 1 pmwinter-fair-final-front

New Amsterdam School Early Childhood and Grades classes are held in a beautiful, home-like environment that nourishes and protects the senses. Children have the unique opportunity to explore the outdoors every day at our neighboring community garden. We uphold consistent daily and seasonal rhythms that instill health, security and trust.

Our comprehensive Waldorf curriculum feeds the imagination, building resilience, creativity and social sensitivity. Our teachers integrate art, movement and music into academics and into daily life, inspiring a genuine joy in learning, reverence for the natural world, and a deep sense of gratitude.

In everything we do, the child’s natural unfolding is our guide.

Spots are available in our programs!
