Families are invited to learn about the unique Waldorf method of education for children in pre-K through eighth grade at Tamarack Waldorf School’s Open House, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., July 30. Visitors can tour classrooms and meet the teachers. Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education, with the goal of inspiring a lifelong love of learning and enabling each student to fulfill their potential.
Established in 1996, Tamarack is a private school and one of more than 900 Waldorf schools worldwide. Tamarack’s mission is to educate the whole child—head, heart and hands—through the Waldorf curriculum, which integrates strong academics with the arts. The homelike environment of the kindergarten encourages imaginative play and gently prepares children for grade school with storytelling, games, singing and crafts. Special subjects include foreign language, handiwork, music, drama and movement. Playgroups are available for young children.
