It Takes a Village

It is bitter-sweet to witness our children exit the dreamy first stage of life. Their little bodies are showing the signs of academic readiness everyday. The loss of teeth, learning to skip, catching with right and left hands, and faces becoming more defined, are just a few of the physical indicators that they are ready.
As we usher them into the next phase we say farewell to the most precious and impressionable years of their lives.

We are a few Mothers of the First Grade 08/09 class.

Waldorf teachers stay with their class of students from the 1st grade through the 8th grade! They are so deeply invested in each child, they practically become a third parent.

"We are dedicated to nurturing children's capacity for imagination, thinking, active willing, and healthy social interactions. Because the effects of media, including television, movies, video games, and computers, are widely recognized to have debilitating effect on those capacities, we feel it is in the child's best interest that media exposure be eliminated from the daily experience of the young child."
