Kindergarten at Camellia Waldorf School provides a quality foundation for your child’s school experience, helping them develop a love of learning, real interest, and an exceptional preparation for life. Our program fosters creativity, cooperation, and imagination.

Camellia’s kindergarten is a magical place. The play yard, daily rhythms, daily art, rich language play, healthy snacks, and inspiring classroom make school a special place.

  • Children learn by doing, with hands-on experiential, kinesthetic learning inside the classroom and in nature.
  • Creative and collaborative indoor play builds social skills.
  • Fairy tales, puppet plays, and stories with rich language, provide a high-quality foundation for literacy, developing vocabulary as well as visualization and memory skills.
  • Lots of time outside – through exploring and playing on our spacious, safe campus, as well as weekly hikes – develops gross motor skills and an appreciation for nature.
  • Our daily and weekly routines provide an emotionally secure and predictable environment for your child.
  • We surround children with an atmosphere of beauty and warmth, since children absorb everything around them.
  • Teachers are attentive to model respectful social interactions and give careful attention to speech.
  • Children perform real hands-on, meaningful work, such as helping to prepare the daily snack.
  • Weekly movement classes stimulate sensory integration.
  • Seasonal crafts develop fine motor skills.

Our developmentally appropriate, mixed-age, two-year kindergarten program is for children turning four and five years old by May 31. Kindergarten is five days per week, from 8:15 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Morning care is available starting at 7:30 a.m. and aftercare is offered until 6:00 p.m.
