New Amsterdam’s Tea and Play is an opportunity for children  2 – 7 years of age to experience the New Amsterdam classroom. Young children will delight in bread baking and free imaginative play in our beautiful, sun-filled classroom. Parents will have the opportunity to observe and learn more about our unique programs. After a period of free play, our teachers will present a puppet show–a mesmerizing component of Waldorf education. Tea and snack will be served.
