Preschool and Kindergarten Tours by Appointment
Experience the magic of the morning in our PreK-K classrooms. Children thrive in our beautiful setting designed especially for them. We cherish their childhood as much as you do. We want them to feel secure, happy, and capable as they navigate these precious years. Our aim is to strengthen their physical bodies, social skills, and resilience in a way that feeds their soul and fosters their engagement with nature.
(9/24/19, 1/15/20, 4/23/20)
There is no other school like us in Connecticut. We are unique and so is your child. A morning tour of PreK-8th grade classes will help you feel the difference. Observe our happy students while class is in session; experience the careful way the day is scheduled; see our beautiful classrooms; and meet our extraordinary teachers. The visit will end with delicious refreshments and an open question and answer period.
Puppet-Show/Early Childhood Tour
A peaceful and enchanted mood prevails. The puppet show in the Waldorf tradition features hand-sewn puppets, sumptuous plant-dyed silks, and a simple, age-appropriate performance style suited to young children’s attention spans and level of awareness. Our puppet shows are appropriate for 3-8 year-olds. After the puppet show, sign-up for a tour of our Early Childhood classrooms.
Experience the rhythm of the morning as you explore the Early Childhood world with all your senses. You and your 3- to 5-year-old child can enjoy a sample Waldorf Early Childhood class: joyful play, beautiful watercolor painting, seasonal songs, creative movement, and a nutritious snack.
Grade School Tours by Appointment
We want your child to be prepared for what comes their way. We teach them how to think – not what to think. Our model is not just a means to an end; it is an unfolding in which learning how to arrive at a possible answer is as important as the answer itself. Our students can turn learning into know-how and apply their skills across disciplines. Take a tour of our classrooms and see why Waldorf works.
Evening Open House: A Walk Through the Grades
By far our most popular admissions event! Our alumni will wow you as their share their Waldorf Education experience while you walk through our beautiful, grade 1-8 classrooms. Our lead teacher will talk about our rich curriculum and answer questions. The incredible work of our talented students will be on display.
First Grade Readiness Evening
We take the time to provide a sound beginning; a solid foundation upon which to grow. Intellectual readiness is only one indicator of readiness. At this young age we hold physical, emotional, and social readiness as even more important indicators. Once those capacities are firmly in place, the sky is the limit for academic learning. Meet our teachers, who are trained in childhood development, during this wonderful evening. Read more about first grade readiness on our admissions FAQ page.
Middle School Morning
Most parents who send their children to our school wish they could have come here as a child. Now your dream can come true. Become a middle schooler for a morning and join us for a lesson in platonic solids. You will quickly understand the beauty and complexity of our curriculum and will have no doubt about your child’s preparedness for high school.
