We are centrally located, near downtown Red Deer. The heritage craftsman home was built in 1912 and lovingly maintained inside and out. The soft wooden tones and natural light are pleasing to a child's senses making it an ideal place for learning and growth. Our school house boasts a large natural backyard, where children can experience nature daily and is located within walking distance to parks and trails.
Our vision is to create an environment that brings, to the children, the activities, the methods, and the philosophy inspired by Waldorf pedagogy and philosophy. We want to create a bridge from the preschool years into the school years that is natural, relevant and respectful of each child’s stage of childhood development. This is the time in a child’s life when they are laying their foundation. We will help them lay a foundation of imagination, life-skill, respect, gratitude, and curiosity for each other and for our natural world through a play-based program.
Our School House brings together a mixture of children. There are a variety of ages from three to six years. Some children are in full time and others in part time. Some children are home schooled, some attend half days at a mainstream school and others have yet to experience attending a program with a group of their peers. With this in mind, we do our utmost, as teachers and caregivers, to create an environment of trust, whereby each child feels free to seek, ask, learn, and express who s/he is. We aim to be sensitive and supportive of each child’s right to dignity and self-worth, where respect for all is nurtured.
“Receive the Child in reverence, educate the Child in love, and let the Child go in freedom!”
