The Spring Garden Waldorf School will offer a chance to see teachers and class in-session, Oct., 15 at 9 a.m. for a unique tour. Attendees will learn firsthand why the Waldorf private school system has caught the attention of the New York Times and National Public Radio.
Spring Garden is part of the longstanding Waldorf tradition, drawing attention for what the New York Times calls, “a teaching philosophy focused on physical activity and learning through creative, hands-on tasks. Waldorf educators strive to implement the right thing at the right time and follow a multidisciplinary approach to teaching, which is supported by modern day scientific research about successful learning.”
Walk Through the Grades events provide parents a unique opportunity to see how teachers employ this innovative, Finnish style approach to education, which gives children the opportunity to learn through a wide variety of experiences, increasing depth of understanding as well as intersecting with individual learning styles, according to school officials.
Spring Garden Waldorf School, located on a rural campus in Copley, serves children from nursery school through 8th Grade. Its curriculum “awakens the mind, enlivens the heart, and engages the hands while drawing forth each student’s ability to become a self confident individual and a lifelong learner.”
Spring Garden Waldorf School is a nonprofit, non-discriminatory educational organization, welcoming children from preschool through 8th grade of all races, religions and national origins.
