Day in the Life

General School Mission

Seedlings is a place where children bloom! We use a blend of Waldorf and Montessori practices as well as traditional preschool lessons. Through play, we focus on preparing the children for future schooling by instilling morals, problem solving and self-help skills. The teacher is a constant model of proper behavior for the children and provides support and patience in demonstrating life skills.
