Waldorf Education Open House at Tamarack Waldorf School
Dec 29, 2017 03:01PM
Families are invited to visit Tamarack Waldorf School’s Open House from 1 to 4 p.m., January 28, to learn more about the unique Waldorf method of education offered for children in Pre-K through high school. Visitors can tour the classrooms, meet the teachers and enjoy presentations by students.
Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education in order to inspire life-long learning and to enable each student to fully develop their capacities. Tamarack educates the whole child—head, heart and hands—through the Waldorf curriculum, which integrates strong academics with the arts. The home-like 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, handwork, music, drama and movement. Art is incorporated throughout the curriculum, and playgroups are available for young children.
Tamarack is one of more than 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide. It is a private school established in 1996 and affiliated with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America.
