Young children learn through play and imitation. In this session, you’ll learn more about how we encourage real (rather than virtual) experiences such as imaginative play, storytelling, music, drawing, and painting, rhythmic games, practical work, and engagement with the natural world to foster the capacity for joy and lifelong success.
A loving interest and acceptance of each child are central to Waldorf education. This session will explore the value of the continued connection between Grades teachers and their students, and the ways this alternative structure organically supports children’s developmental shifts while encouraging a deeply integrated knowledge base.
I walked on campus and fell in love. I feel like my children are attending a school that fills their souls. The amazing faculty focus on building self-esteem and developing the whole child. The education includes building strength in their heart, hands, and mind. A Waldorf education fosters a love of lifelong learning in children.

Current EC & Grades Parents
I chose Waldorf school because their philosophy perfectly aligns with my family’s rhythm. From the amazing teachers, whole child developmental learning, nature-based play, and gentle nurturing environment, my daughter is thriving here. I couldn’t ask for a better school for my child to learn, grow, and be exactly who she was meant to be.
Current EC Parent
My children’s experience at The Waldorf School has allowed them to unfold as learners at their own pace while providing a developmentally appropriate curriculum that kept them engaged and challenged. My son, now in high school at YPAS/Manual treasures his time at Waldorf and the capacities he gained that prepared him for life-long learning.
