The Emerson Waldorf School offers a program for 1-2 year-olds and one parent or adult caregiver, 24 Friday sessions 9am-11:30am September to May. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to have a first-hand experience of a Waldorf Early Childhood Program.

Parents will find companionship and support while their children play. Led by an experienced Waldorf teacher, each morning starts with free play for the children and simple craft activities for the parents. Clean up follows and everyone is encouraged to take part in a short, simple circle time, nursery rhymes and finger games.

An organic, nutritious snack is offered to the children and the morning ends with a puppet show. We end the day with a walk through our lovely wooded land near the Nursery building.

Morning Garden children are between the ages of 15-27 months of age by June 1st.

NOTE: If your child is not age-eligible for Morning Garden, we encourage you to explore the Simplicity Parenting program offered Fall 2014 and Spring 2015.  For more information CLICK HERE.
