Want to learn more about the Waldorf Education? Greenwood School in Mill Valley presents a talk by Eugene Schwartz on Tuesday, November 9 from 7–9 pm at Mill Valley's Masonic Hall. Schwartz, a graduate of Columbia University, has thirty years of teaching experience as both a class teacher and an educator of Waldorf teachers. His talk, “The Heart of Education,” shows how the cultivation of “emotional intelligence” through stories and games, art and science, social interactions and academic rigor, gives the Waldorf student the gift of a lifelong love of learning.
Schwartz will focus on some important turning points in children’s lives—particularly at ages 7, 9, and 12—so that we may experience for ourselves how Waldorf education speaks to the heart of the child. RSVP requested—(415) 388-0495 or email@example.com. Greenwood School is an independent preschool and K–8 school located in the heart of Mill Valley. The Masonic Hall is located at 19 Corte Madera Avenue in Mill Valley.
Mill Valley's Greenwood School has announced the opening of its new preschool for fall 2010. Greenwood School will offer a Waldorf-inspired preschool program for children ages 3–5 where students are provided with a secure, caring, and structured home-like environment to begin their school years. This newly established preschool program will offer an early childhood experience where teachers create a safe and meaningful classroom community in which children hear stories, see puppet shows, sing, bake bread, make soup, learn to make beautiful and useful things, explore nature, build houses and structures out of natural materials, and celebrate seasonal festivals.
Two-, three-, and five-day programs are available as well as afternoon care from 12:30 to 5:30 pm. Applications are now being accepted for September 2010, and children may enroll at any time during the year if space is available.
