We believe that greatest gift we can give our children is to allow them to be supported in a safe and loving space where they are free to make their own discoveries and connections to others, the world and themselves. Waldorf education, celebrating over 100 years, is grounded in the work of Rudolf Steiner. He described this approach as “an education for the future.” The future is now!
The foundation of our work with children ages 2 ½ – 5 is the integration of imitation (through meaningful work) and imagination (play and story telling) to nurture the development of independence, responsibility, social competence and community connectedness, and well being in children. We do this by focusing on practical, hands-on activities, and creative play.
The Lilac School provides a beautiful, warm home-like environment, and uses established rhythms to promote the sense of well being children need to grow and develop.
