If a child has been able in his play to give up his whole loving being to the world around him, he will be able, in the serious tasks of later life, to devote himself with confidence and power to the service of the world. — Rudolf Steiner
ASHWOOD’S KINDERGARTEN is truly a “children’s garden.” Here the young child, like the plant, is allowed to grow within a time frame that cannot be hurried if the mature being is to become strong, vibrant, and balanced.
Our Kindergarten program supports young children at this crucial developmental stage by emphasizing imaginative play, purposeful work, movement, social and artistic endeavors, and literacy.
Consistent with the overall Waldorf philosophy, the programs allow children to grow up sensibly and slowly. Our classrooms provide a warm, secure, lovely place in which a child’s imagination and sense of self will flourish.
