We offer a vibrant alternative to traditional childcare in the Pioneer Valley.
We are nurturing caregivers who offer a unique approach to caring for young children while honoring the wisdom of the Earth.
We recognize the importance of a child’s early years as as a time to learn good habits and make healthy choices for their body, mind and spirit.
OUR SIX CORE PILLARS
We work with crayons, watercolors, finger knitting and beeswax to facilitate beautiful expression of self. Recycling materials is another modality of approaching art as well as lots of singing, various types of dancing and acting out some of our favorite stories. We have many instruments that the children engage in during play time as well as in our morning circle.
Through yoga, meditation, ceremonies and celebrations we practice and become focused on nurturing ourselves. We also experience the richness of giving and community service.
HEALTH & HEALING
Learning how to take good care of ourselves and each other with compassion, healthy foods, organic gardening and more!
The daily lesson focuses on either a number or letter of the alphabet with a Waldorf education approach.
PLAYING IN NATURE
Classes on observing the wonders of the natural world are held daily. The children then capture their experience on paper in their nature journals. (If there is enough interest for the older children we may include an equestrian program with education in the care of horses.)
We help facilitate communication between staff and children using creative problem solving, non-violent communication (the ability to use our words to express feelings and needs) and the nurtured heart approach.
