serving children in Nursery, Kindergarten, and the early grades
The alluring scents and sunny days of summer tempt us to trade work and routine in favor of time outdoors. Our teachers understand the young child’s desire to daydream and explore during the summer season. They consciously plan experiences that allow children to unwind from the school year into a new “holiday” mood and a sense of freedom and exploration.
Designed to complement our September through June programs, Green Meadow Waldorf School’s summer offerings extend the school year for 3- to 9-year-old children and engage them with a balance of summer activities that strengthen their developing skills and capacities.
Run by trained Waldorf teachers, our summer programs take place on more than 11 acres of farm, fields, forests, gardens, and streams. Parents appreciate our unplugged environment, our ecological sustainability, and our commitment to serving food made with only natural and organic ingredients. We use rich materials for handcrafts and authentic tools for gardening, woodworking, and cooking. Children are welcomed into learning experiences that nourish their senses, engage their innate desire for self-initiated movement, and inspire their budding imaginations.
The Nature Place Day Camp also offers a non-competitive, nature-oriented experience on our campus for children aged 4 to 15.
