Kindergarten

Children who will be at least 5 years old by October 1 are welcome to join our Kinder program.

Children must be at least 6 years old by June 1 of the current school year to move up to first grade in the Lively Arts HomeSchool program or to attend first grade in  MPCS regular full-time school.

The Kindergarten Enrichment Program offers a joyful, nurturing setting that inspires the imagination. The program is rich in singing, seasonal activities, painting, puppetry,​ and storytelling. Waldorf teachers believe it is profoundly important that the ​young child​ have time to develop ​their will through play and practical work ​while​ in a safe and loving environment.

Kindergarten children​ in the Homeschool Enrichment Program will experience many of the ​developmentally-appropriate activities that are typical of a ​​Waldorf kindergarten classroom. In Kindergarten there is a lead teacher and an assistant in the classroom.
