Engaging young learners through nature, story & art
A Non-Profit Educational Collaborative
Cairn Hill brings the transformative power of the arts to young learners in urban and multi-ethnic communities using nature, story, music, and the hands-on approach inspired by Waldorf education.
Enjoy a morning of warmth and support with other parents in a soothing classroom setting.
We provide a sensory rich environment for children to learn and explore, facilitated by experienced EC educators familiar with Waldorf education and children’s developmental stages.
Children will enjoy imaginative play and healthy movement, a light snack, music, simple games and puppetry.
Parents and caregivers will be guided to observe their children’s movement, interests and interactions. We offer a chance for parents to relax and bond and in an atmosphere of support and encouragement.
