PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS FOR 2019/2020
The Calgary Waldorf School offers a full day preschool program. The child’s day begins with outdoor play in the naturalized environment in our Kinderwing playground. The beginnings of large-scale, cooperative play take hold while the children climb hills, play amongst the trees, and excavate the giant sandbox.
Once inside, the children’s day is structured in a gentle, dependable rhythm that allows them to experience restful quiet play that engages their fine motor skills and concentration, story time enhanced with puppetry to engage their imagination, independent and fantasy play building block castles, homes and forts with natural materials, and a group snack so that children can come together as a community for sustenance and to practice table manners and conversation skills.
