SWS announces expanded Early Childhood Program


The Susquehanna Waldorf School, serving students from early childhood through eighth grade, will add a third mixed-age kindergarten class in the 2015-16 academic year. Children, ages three to six, are eligible to enroll and program options include three half-days up to five full-days, allowing flexibility to accommodate many schedules.

“At a time when so many young children are being asked to sit at desks for extensive periods of time, prepare for standardized tests, and memorize words and numbers, we at The Susquehanna Waldorf School encourage early learning experiences that enable young children to develop self-confidence, independence and creative thinking,’ explains Admissions Director, Michelle Wann. 

Waldorf Early Childhood educates young children by attending to a strong daily rhythm, surrounding them in a home-like setting and offering natural, open-ended toys to allow for imaginative and creative play. Kindergarten students learn through balanced movement, storytelling, experiencing language through song and poems, sequencing, sensory integration, crafting and play.  Waldorf mixed-age Kindergarten supports the work of the young child, which is to play. Outdoor time, imaginative play and experiential learning are hallmarks of our early childhood program.
