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!

Hello Maple Village families and friends,

We’d like to pass on the following information and invitation from Pasadena Waldorf School:

We would like to bring to your attention an important event this Sunday in Old Town Pasadena hosted by ReGeneration, a non-profit working to seed Waldorf education in the Middle East. These start-up kindergartens are tangible evidence of the social renewal mission of Waldorf education and their stories are quite inspirational. This is an opportunity to learn more about how Waldorf is working in the world, and support the Palestinian kindergarten effort.

The Parent Education Mandate Group of PWS

Bring your friends to this inspiring presentation in the heart of Old Town Pasadena and help us get a matching grant for $10,000 for Waldorf kindergarten teacher training.

In Israel there are over 200 Waldorf kindergartens providing peaceful and healing classrooms for thousands of young children growing up under the stress of regional conflict…

Now is your chance to help Palestinian children receive this healing education as well.

Violence of any kind, early in life – either experienced or observed – can have long-lasting and detrimental impacts on children.  Research has shown that the early years in a child’s life-while the human brain is forming-represent a critically important window of opportunity to develop a child’s full potential and shape key academic, social, and cognitive skills that determine a child’s success in school and in life.

A nurturing environment in the early years can modify an individual’s brain development and the ability to deal with stressful conditions later in life.
