Outdoor Kindergarten Home Study Program



AnnieJoshua 2014 cropped2When children join our Cherry Blossom Outdoor / Home Study Hybrid Kindergarten Class, they are able to enjoy the nurturing environment of their home as well as a healthy interaction with other children in an outdoor setting. The Class meets three times a week for an outdoor kindergarten experience allowing the children to socialize and have an experience away from their parents.

Families are provided materials and a curriculum inspired by Waldorf education to implement in the home on the days that the childern are not present at school.  They also participate in parent evenings once a month with the teacher and meet regularly one on one to discuss their child's progress and individual needs.
