Description

After having joined us for an Early Childhood Information Evening, now return with your child(ren) and share an abbreviated day in the kindergarten classroom. We will enjoy indoor and outdoor play, circle time, a puppet show and a snack together. Teachers will be available to answer questions, one-on-one, during outdoor play time.

Please have your child wear closed-toed shoes for outdoor play. Thanks!

Why Waldorf?

Kindergarten at Waldorf School of Orange County celebrates the riches of a child’s imagination. In our Early Childhood classrooms, simplicity is key. Toys are crafted of natural materials and feature beautiful colors and textures to encourage, but not overstimulate, the senses. There is a rhythm each day. We are helping your child build a strong foundation from the ground up. A Waldorf classroom is a sanctuary honoring the notion that a child’s play is her truest work.

There are no desks, no flashcards, no tests, no iPads, no homework. Children at this age learn with their bodies. Pre-literacy and math skills are introduced in circle time, games, finger knitting, singing, cooking and more. When our children move on to first grade, they do so with a variety of skills - rooted in play - that promote academic readiness without the burden of advanced, abstract concepts that do not serve the younger mind.

“Play is the royal road to childhood happiness and adult brilliance.” - Joseph Chilton Pearce
