New Slideshow about the Kindergarten

Take a look! Green Meadow’s Early Childhood programs foster the foundations of academic excellence. Our Early Childhood teachers provide the young child with a warm, beautiful, loving, home-like environment, which is protective and secure, where the day unfolds in a predictable, regular way. The children are given a range of activities and the structure they need to prepare for the next phase of school life.

Film Screening This Wednesday 7/15

Sheep to Slippers Begins July 27!

Sheep to Slippers: children make their own beautiful wool slippers

Weeks of July 27 and August 3 (two-week program)

9:00am to 2:00pm

Support your child’s creativity through this two-week summer offering! Children will explore the magical nature of wool, our gift from the sheep, as they design and felt their very own wool slippers. Days will be spent washing and carding wool, collecting flowers and cutting vegetables to create dye baths, and observing the transformation of the fibers into a beautiful rainbow of natural hues. Each child will design and fashion an individual pair of felted wool slippers, and by the end of the two weeks everyone will have their own pair, hand-made to fit their own feet.

In addition, there will be ample time for circle, story, and puppet plays, as well as walks along our many acres of beautiful wooded trails and romps through the sprinkler in the play yard.

Children will enjoy healthy organic snacks made at Green Meadow and bring a picnic lunch from home each day.

This offering is led by Early Childhood Educator Nell Rowland and takes place at the Green Meadow Waldorf School Kindergarten Building. For more information or to register, please email Mrs. Rowland at $750 for two-week program, includes snacks and all materials.
