The Language Arts program emphasizes high quality literature through story-telling, reading aloud, drama, creative writing and poetry. The central goal of the program is to have children emerge as avid readers who find joy in literature, and as skilled writers who can express themselves authentically and creatively. Waldorf's beautiful fairy tales and art are also implemented to bring literature and writing to life.

Social Studies:  Students study geography and diverse cultures from around the world through cultural stories, making art and cooking. As the students get older, they learn about US History and Government through living history and hands on projects. They also study Economics and every Spring we hold a Marketplace event for the children to create and set up their own businesses.
