Our Silver Maples class is designed for children who are two years five months by September 2017. This class is a wonderful introduction to the Waldorf early childhood classroom curriculum and our school community. Led by experienced teachers, the children are encouraged to take part in free play, bread-baking and snack preparation, and a circle time with nursery rhymes, songs, finger plays and stories. Parents will have the opportunity work on simple crafts and to engage in the study of child development. Children, parents and teachers will enjoy nutritious organic snack and outside time together. Beginning in November, parents will start the gentle separation process, spending time together in our parent gathering space. Beginning in January, children will stay with their class on their own. Silver Maples is a full-year program.

These weekly classes are nurturing for both parent and child alike. Each class has time for movement, free exploration, singing and games.
