Tea and Play 2017-18

Join Us this Fall for “Tea and Play” — a New Amsterdam Sample Class

Free Tea & Play sample session when you RSVP to

New Amsterdam’s Tea and Play is an opportunity for children  2 – 6 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 circle time or a puppet show–mesmerizing components of Waldorf education. Tea and snack will be served. Free if you RSVP to!

Children older than 6 are welcome to visit and participate in a grades class during school hours. Children under 2 are welcome to visit and participate in a parent and child class during school hours.
