Open House at Tamarack Waldorf School
Tamarack Waldorf School will hold an open house for parents from 1 to 4 p.m., January 29, to learn more about the Waldorf method of education for children in pre-kindergarten through high school. Both the elementary and high schools will be open so that visitors can tour the classrooms, meet the teachers and enjoy presentations by students.
A private school established in 1996, Tamarack is affiliated with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America as one of more than 1,000 worldwide.
Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education in order to inspire lifelong learning and 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 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, handwork, music, drama and movement. Art is incorporated throughout the curriculum and playgroups are available for young children.
Locations: 1150 E. Brady St. (elementary school) and 2628 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. (high school). For more information, call 414-277-0009, email Sarah.Stokes@TamarackWaldorf.org or visit TamarackWaldorf.org.
