Inspiring Life-long Learning for 25 Years
"Once upon a time, there was a child who lived among the sun, the moon, and the stars..." so begins the birthday story. In our Waldorf kindergarten, we are treated to a special birthday story. Family members are invited to join us. Older siblings in our grades program "come back" to visit our garden that day.The celebration helps us come to know the child and the family better and to honor the birth of the child. Each child is presented a gift prepared by the loving hands of the teachers and a birthday card prepared by the loving hands and hearts of their peers. There is story, cake, popcorn, and singing in a culminating circle game.The tradition and rhythm of this day is repeated throughout the year for each child, but just as the children are, each celebration is unique!
