Humankind was born into nature and has transformed itself in the progress of civilization. Our goal is that by understanding these transformations and seeing the need to keep their development in harmony with nature’s law’s, we can strive for a progress that is wholesome.

Within this context we will introduce reading and writing through great literature and art. We will begin with animal stories and move through to stories of saints and holy people from around the world. We will introduce and explore numbers through activities and art. We will dive into practical activities building models and gardening, and weaving singing and folklore into our time together.

Topics, themes and projects will be studied in depth over multiple sessions and drawn from Mr. Guest’s many years of experience with Waldorf Education, modified to suit the needs and interests of the enrolled students.

3 hrs. Thursdays, 12:30pm - 3:30pm

We create a time and a space to dive into Ancient Civilizations. Our class steps into the daily life of people from Mesopotamia and Egypt. Children spend the morning concentrating on one aspect of our studies when necessary or change gears to a different but related task. We learn about ancient people by studying their geography, government, religion, sports, and children’s toys and games.

Our class always goes outside for a break and some ancient sports. We read stories from each area, learning about the cradle of civilization and seeking the first superhero—Gilgamesh from Mesopotamia and hieroglyphs in hidden passages from Egypt. Their music and art lend themselves to on-going projects. Math and science are incorporated according to the children’s interest and level. Each civilization’s ingenious inventions made way for their societies’ progress. Have you seen The Towers of Babylon or a secret passage in a pyramid? We travel to these places on the Mediterranean Sea or the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
