Kindergarten

The social dynamics of our Kindergarten make way for a more complex social environment.  

Live Oak Waldorf School offers a two-year Kindergarten program to children between the ages of 4 years and 9 months (by Sept. 1st of the school year) - 6 years. Kindergarten is a 5-day program from 8:15 AM - 12:45 PM. After-school care is also available.
 
Children learn and play in a multi-age transitional classroom to cultivate confidence, and leadership and build a more complex skill set before 1st grade.  The younger ones can be inspired by the older ones' expertise in the yard or the room, and the older ones are available to encourage and support their younger peers.
 
The Kindergarten offers a nurturing environment in which the young child enters into imaginative and dynamic play.  Children from the Preschool are ready for artistic activities including drawing, watercolor painting, baking, handwork, seasonal crafts, woodworking, and beeswax modeling.  Outdoor play includes hiking, gardening, tree climbing, and experiencing all the elements and expansiveness that nature and the seasons offer. Circle Time is based on a rich storytelling curriculum of fairy tales, puppet plays, and dramatic renditions of stories.
 
The children also participate in "Nature Day" where they enjoy 1 day a week outdoors with their class. With backpacks packed and a sense of adventure, they spend the day exploring the trails and fully immersed in the natural environment available on our forty-acre campus.
 
We strive to meet the needs of the whole child as a thinking, feeling, and moving being upon the earth and recognize them as a group. We place a strong focus on social health and inclusion. Waldorf education is a social education.
 
Led by our experienced Waldorf teachers, our Kindergarten Program offers parents support in child development and education while preparing for entry into the elementary grades
