Step Into Waldorf Preschool
Presented by Deborah Parrish
May 6, 2014 6:00 – 7:30 pm
What is a Waldorf Preschool? 6:00-6:30
Come and find out what a Waldorf Preschool is and how it differs from a
Waldorf Kindergarten and mainstream programs. We will talk about the role
of circle, cooking and storytelling, and imitation in early childhood.
The Magical World of Play in the Waldorf Curriculum 6:30-7:30
Play has a crucial importance in the Waldorf preschool. We will cover some
practical insights about play and ways to best facilitate play in order to
support the developing young child. We will also look at how the role of play
is unique in Waldorf Education.
This event is open to all who are interested! Donation-based childcare is available with Ms. Mele, our assistant preschool teacher. Please let us know if you intend to use childcare. Contact us if you have any questions and we’ll see you on Tuesday!

Magical Sun Tea will be available…please bring a cup or bowl for your enjoyment.
