We instill a love of language through storytelling, puppet shows, poems, songs, nursery rhymes, and language-inspired movement.
Creative play — the core element of our early education program — exercises children’s imaginations and strengthens the self-control and decision-making skills they will need to succeed in school.
Our extensive use of the playground is based on our belief that childhood is a time to learn through activity, interaction with nature, creative play, and social integration.
Waldorf in the Woods, our outdoor kindergarten program, is representative of the connection between students and the natural world that the Washington Waldorf School strives to make in all grades.
