Early Childhood

During the first stage of childhood, from birth until around the age of six or seven, children are learning and experiencing the world primarily through physical activity. The nurturing environment of the Housatonic Valley Waldorf School's Early Childhood program provides plenty of opportunities for learning and meaningful engagement through exploration, creative play, and purposeful work.
The classroom is a child’s first home away from home. At the Housatonic Valley Waldorf School it is a place of warmth, order, and beauty. Walls are painted in luminous washes. Curtains are made from plant-dyed fabrics. Sturdy wooden tables and chairs support activities and snacks. It is an environment that nourishes the senses and fosters reverence for nature and the material world.

Rhythm is the bearer of life, and therewith the bearer of health.
-Rudolf Steiner
