Our Philosophy

Willow Garden preschool is inspired by the Waldorf philosophy.  Our children thrive in a home environment where daily rhythm and routine provide the structure for exploring the world with imagination and creativity. 

We spend most of our day outside -- caring for small farm animals, picking strawberries and tomatoes in the garden, going on nature walks, singing, painting, dancing and listening to stories. 

Indoors, children play with simple toys made of natural materials, create small handwork projects, bake bread, make organic snacks, and clean up joyfully -- all with rhythm and a song.   Winter, spring, summer and fall are our curriculum. Stories, songs, festivals, foods, art -- and of course our gardening activities -- are all rooted in the seasons.
