The Spring Garden Waldorf will host an in-class tour and open house this month. An in-session class tour will take place Nov. 12 at 9 a.m. and the open house takes place Nov. 16, at 1 p.m.
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.”
Nothing shows the power of this type of education like seeing it in action, according to school officials. The Walk Through the Grades events provide parents an opportunity to see how teachers employ this 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.
Our open house allows for interaction with our faculty, staff and current parents to answer questions both about our school and Waldorf’s approach to education. To learn more, contact Amy Hecky, director of Admissions, at (330) 666-0574 or [email protected]. Visit online at www.sgws.org.
