Waldorf School of the Peninsula Launches Full-day Kindergarten Program

Original post made by Waldorf School of the Peninsula, another community, on Jul 1, 2014

Waldorf School of the Peninsula is pleased to announce expanded hours for its kindergarten program to include a full-day option beginning in September. The new flexible schedule is designed to accommodate the needs of working families and children who are ready for a full-day program. Families will now have the option to pick their children at lunchtime or at 3 pm. Aftercare will continue to be offered until 5:45 pm.

Waldorf preschool and kindergarten programs create a nurturing atmosphere of wonder, beauty, respect and security for children to begin their life-long process of engagement with the world. In the WSP kindergarten, children learn through play, purposeful work, storytelling and puppet shows, as well as practical and artistic activities. Activities include indoor and outdoor creative play, circle time, snack, tidy-up time, and story time. Through joyful engagement in our pre-academic curriculum, children develop lifelong capacities for creative thinking, healthy senses, self-confidence, awareness of others, and readiness and enthusiasm for academic learning.

You are invited to come and experience Waldorf Early Childhood Education at our Summer Open House on Tuesday August 19th from 4 to 5:30 pm on our Los Altos campus. Come at 4 o'clock for a short talk about Waldorf Education and the young child. There will be an opportunity to visit with our teachers, tour our new play garden, and experience the beauty of our Nursery School and Kindergarten classrooms.

Waldorf Education is approaching its 100th anniversary with more than 2,000 kindergartens and early childhood programs in 80 countries around the world. Waldorf School of the Peninsula was established in 1984 by a small group of parents and educators, who were motivated by the great need, in the highly technological area of Silicon Valley, for a school that would address the heart and will as well as the mind of the child. WSP currently serves approximately 300 students in our nursery through high school programs.
