All are welcome to the Spring Garden Waldorf Open House and Walk Through Days, October and November. Two in-session class tours will take place Wednesday, Oct. 14 and Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 9 a.m.
The all-community Open House is Sunday, Nov. 8 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. The school’s Walk Through the Grades events provide parents a unique opportunity to see how teachers employ this innovative 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.
The Open House allows for interaction with faculty, staff and current parents to answer questions both about the school and Waldorf’s approach to education.
