Early Childhood – Kindergarten: The Playgarden is located just blocks from the beach, is a perfect place for children (preschooler to kindergarteners) to explore, grow and create. We focus on the whole child: head, heart, and hands. Our literacy-rich curriculum includes play, music, poetry, movement, bread-baking, gardening, painting, and frequent walks to the beach.
The Playgarden is very excited to offer a 2, 3 or 5-day Forest Waldorf inspired program to ages 4-6! Our students are fully immersed in all the outdoors has to offer. The long-term benefits of learning outside in nature are well researched and documented. Our local parks provide the perfect setting with Florida scrub hammock, forest, wetland, dunes, and beach all in one location. Just like our traditional program, we recognize the benefits of following a predictable rhythm to bring order to our time in the Forest. Each part of our forest rhythm is designed with this in mind and includes circle time, story-time, nature hike, snack, outdoor artistic activities, cooking and baking and of course lots of time for play, observation, exploration, discovery, and wonder.
We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origins, genders, or religious affiliations in the administrations of its educational or admissions policies. #CO4DU0093
