Festivals around the year in a Waldorf Kindergarten

All day workshop with WISC San Diego

October 19, 2019 8:30 AM-5:30 PM located at The Waldorf School San Diego, Altadena Campus

Seasonal festivals are integral to the rhythm of life in a Waldorf kindergarten to connect the child with the rhythms of nature around the cycle of the year. In the classroom we create a seasonal mood to celebrate the changes in mother earth, in morning circle, story, arts and simple crafts. There is joy in the anticipation, the preparation, and the celebration itself. Festivals build community through parent participation and create fond memories for years to come.

Patricia Rubano will guide us through the cycle of seasonal festivals around the year. Peggy Waterhouse and Anna Masters will bring classroom activities for circle,  story, and seasonal crafts, and share her experience in weaving parent work into the  joyful life of festivals in the kindergarten. 

Peggy Waterhouse, MA spent 20 years as an early childhood teacher and administrator at the Pine Hill Waldorf School in New Hampshire, before returning to her native California to Direct the early childhood program at the East Bay Waldorf school in 2015.
