Childcare (Early Childhood Education)

We offer a full time, year round childcare early education program for children from three months to five years. Our curriculum of care is informed by Waldorf education and the principles developed by pediatrician Emmi Pikler. Children benefit from a daily rhythm, healthy foods, ample time for play, and plenty of time outdoors discovering their world, accompanied by skilled and loving educators.
