Almost 50 participants came out to take part in our Windows Into Waldorf Open House this past Saturday, February 9th. It was wonderful to see so many parents taking a sincere interest in Waldorf education.
Families with small children engaged in a mini-kindergarten morning. Children enjoyed exploring the kindergarten room, playing with the many open-ended toys and learning to bake bread with Ms. Rita. Mrs. Friedman led the families in a movement circle, while our Nursery teacher Ms. D’Anne told the children a story. Families then got to sample the bread they had made with butter and honey and enjoy our outside play space.
Parents in the Grades Experience got to step into the shoes of a Waldorf student. Their morning began with the ring of our school bell and a brief introduction. These parents were then led through a lower grades experience by Ms. Alday and Mrs. Potts. Parents even created a main lesson page just as our students would do. They graduated on to an upper grades experience of science, math and history with Ms. Guido, Ms. Schmitt and Herr Kian.
If you missed this opportunity, our next Windows Into Waldorf Open House will be Saturday, April 13th. We hope to see you there!
