Hummingbirds Nest preschool creates a holistic environment through imitation, repetition and strengthening the “DO-ing intelligence” through healthy movement, creative daily rhythm and experiential learning. These aspects of the curriculum stimulate the child’s multiple intelligence into wholeness.
4.5 YEARS – 6 YEARS OLD
Hummingbirds Nest Kindergarten is an extension of preschool. Kindergarten is a partnering of new ideas within the world of the young child. The Kindergarten child has an enthusiasm for life, lives strongly in imagination and masters skills through a strong imitation of the teacher and the interaction with peers. Our curriculum mindfully prepares the child for the structures of elementary education.

12m-2.9 Years & Caregivers
Our Parent-Toddler class is a gentle introduction to Waldorf education for parents or caregivers and toddlers ages 12 months old to 2.9 years old. We will explore rhythm, circle time, how do we meet today's child and their unique capacities for learning, movement, explore the latest on brain development and articles. We will gather to allow free play as we share insights into parenting as well as share a meal as a community.
Ms. Melinda works her magic with children like she is Queen of the Fairies. As an adult, I too am mesmerized as she softly sings directions to the children and gently tell stories using puppets. There is so much breath and rhythm to the day. I wish I had Ms. Melinda when I was in preschool. Her heart has so much room to love every child for the special individual they are.
