Waldorf in the Woods Kindergarten Program

Established in the 2015-2016 school year, this program will be almost entirely outdoor-based and is modeled after similar programs now popular throughout Europe and at several other Waldorf schools in the U.S. The class will experience the outdoors throughout the seasons with ample room on our campus and on county parkland behind our school to run, dig, explore, garden, and build. The natural world will be front and center each day as the class moves along hiking trails and visits various natural features along the way. A hearty snack will be prepared and served daily and other elements of the traditional Waldorf kindergarten will be woven into the curriculum such as circle time, storytelling and puppetry and seasonal crafts and festivals. An indoor classroom will be a home base for starting and ending the mornings and offer shelter when a respite is needed from inclement weather.

Monday through Friday from 8:30-12:30 p.m. The morning program will open and close on our Children's Garden Playground, at 4800 Sangmore Road, Bethesda, MD 20816.

Afternoon program available until 3 p.m. and extended day care available until 6 p.m.
