OPEN HOUSE: Window in to the Waldorf Grades Curriculum

JOIN US FOR AN OPEN HOUSE
A Window into the Waldorf Grades Curriculum
Thursday, October 4th, from 7 – 8:30 PM

This is an opportunity to find out about Waldorf education in the grades program here at Madison Waldorf. Our grade school is rooted in the belief that the needs of childhood must be preserved and honored, and in keeping with the Waldorf education philosophy, our curriculum is structured to compliment the student’s developmental stages. It is an approach to education that honors every student’s enthusiasm for initiative, creativity and social responsibility. Lessons balance cognitive and emotional intelligence, and physical activity, and each academic subject receives intense focus over the course of a year, and integrates academic work with practical and fine arts.
