River Valley Waldorf School, a unique private school serving children from pre-K through 8th grade, holds a School Tour on January 15 and February 5 at 9 a.m. Additionally, there will be an Open House for the early childhood (3 and under) program on January 31 at 10 a.m. The school invites families to experience and learn more about Waldorf education and the River Valley community.
Developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919, Waldorf Education is based on a profound understanding of human development that addresses the needs of the growing child. Waldorf teachers strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole child- the heart and the hands, as well as the head. For the Waldorf student, music, dance, theater, writing, literature, legends and myths are not simply subjects to be read about, ingested and tested. They are experienced. Through these experiences, Waldorf students cultivate a lifelong love of learning as well as the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities to be individuals certain of their paths and to be of service to the world.
River Valley Waldorf School is located at 1395 Bridgeton Hill Rd, in Upper Black Eddy. To register for the Open House, call 610-982-5606. For more information, visit RiverValleySchool.org. See ad page 9
