After School Program Teacher

Primary Function

The After School Program is a program for children enrolled at GMWS.  Otto Specht students may enroll subject to approval by GMWS and the director of the Otto Specht school. This program is planned with the values and practices of Waldorf education that are embedded in all programs at GMWS.  The teachers provide a daily rhythm in a warm, community environment to offer children refreshment in body, mind, and soul from a full day at school.  A substantial snack is provided, along with supervised activities that include creative free play, guided seasonal crafts, and assisting older children with homework. The program is designed with a first hour for more active play balanced with activities for quieter play and interaction, practical work, and homework.
