Nature Based Waldorf Education

Our school days will be spent primarily outdoors following the wisdom and knowledge of Waldorf education and the long standing tradition of forest kindergartens. Our teachers provide nurturing relationship-based care and foster social awareness, along with opportunities for creative exploration through artistic offerings such as handwork and sewing, art with beeswax crayons, and nature crafts. Our curriculum will be further enriched by purposeful work such as raking, sweeping, gardening, planting, and more. All of this will be rooted in a robust outdoor experience that is proven to increase social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.

Asheville Waldorf’s Outdoor classroom environment
Our nursery and kindergarten program will utilize our outdoor play yards with plenty of have well-designed play structures and quiet, shaded sandboxes which provide a balanced outdoor play environment. Our students will also enjoy Asheville Waldorf School’s school garden for further exploration, as well as ample space for running, digging, gardening, swinging, and climbing.

Our Outdoor Parent-Child Class is 6 minutes from our west Asheville campus. The location will be shared upon registration
