MGWS is a Waldorf early childhood program. Our focus, in a nutshell, is supporting the young children through a developmentally appropriate program, to engage in the world with the full expressive use of their 'head, heart and hands'. Our curriculum provides experiences focused on crafts, diversity, circle and story time, watercolor painting, baking our daily organic snacks, and caring for the plants and animals on our school's mini-farm.
