We are fully human only while playing, and we play only when we are human in the truest sense of the word.

Pre-k School Age Guidelines

To attend our pre-k school in September a student must be turn 3 by April 30th of the current school year and be toilet trained. If a child does not meet this age guideline but turns 3 years old later in the school year, they can attend school after they turn 3 years of age.

Dandelion, Sunflower, and Rose Kindergarten Classes

Preschool-age children may also enroll in one of our three mixed-age kindergarten classes–a hallmark of Waldorf education. The Rose and Sunflower classes meet 8:10 am to 12:30 pm and the Dandelion class meets 8:20 am to 12:40 pm. These classes are for children attending either three or five days a week. Five-day children are prioritized in class placement. Three day students attend Tuesday-Thursday. Families who require a later pick-up time may sign up for Extended Care.
