KINDER CAMP| Summer garden Ages 3.5-6
June 17- Aug 9
Built upon Waldorf understanding of the child we provide children with a nurturing environment which allows the imagination to unfold. The majority of our day is spent outside in the warm summer sun, climbing trees, digging in gardens, and explore the great outdoors. We strive to provide a world where children can experience the wonder of childhood. Within the rhythm of our day, we have story time, snack, crafts, circle games, lunch, and nap.
