a note from our teacher

Dear Seeds of Joy Village Community,

 

During these uncertain times, it is comforting to know that a Waldorf Early Childhood Education at Seeds of Joy Village (SOJV) is available for families of the greater Redondo Beach area. For those of you who are new to Waldorf education, the goal of the early childhood years is to nurture a sense of wonder and curiosity in the young child, while encouraging reverence for the goodness of life.

 

It brings me great joy to announce that I will be teaching two pods of six children this year at SOJV. Along with my enthusiasm, I bring 20+ years as a Waldorf Educator. Over the past two decades, whether it be nursery classes, after care programs, summer camps, biodynamic gardening or service learning trips to Hawaii, I have centered each of these unique educational experiences around outdoor education.

 

I am honored to share my expertise with the early childhood classes at SOJV. Our daily and weekly outdoor rhythms will be interwoven with seasonal celebrations and will support the children as they move wholeheartedly into play and learning. Handwork, healthy meals, and outdoor play will encourage the proper growth of the children’s physical bodies and social interaction and creative play will lay the foundation for emotional and social growth. What better way can we meet the goal of the early childhood years than by spending a large portion of the day in nature with friends?

 

I look forward to teaching your children at SOJV and I can’t wait to get to know you all and your children this school year at Wilderness Park.

 

In gratitude,

Ms. Amy
