My top 4 reasons for choosing Highland Hall for my 3 children: First, the parent/child class! What a wonderful opportunity for a parent to spend time with their young child in a loving, calm, and respectful environment. It nurtures the growth of the child as well as the parent child relationship unlike any other group. Secondly, the nursery and kindergarten classes are just delightful! They are full of wonder, opportunity for deep play, and experiences that prepare children not only for the abstract academic work of the grades, but build healthy habits that will serve them in their education and beyond. Thirdly, my oldest son has just begun the first grade and can be seen to hop out of bed in the morning excited about what he will be learning in school, beit reading, writing, math, German, Spanish, gardening, singing, movement, games, or handwork; he is excited. What more could a parent ask for! Lastly, parent education is a huge part of the experience at Highland Hall. Parents are held in such a way that not only nurtures family life, but allows the child to absorb the richness of the curriculum. I am proud to say that my children go to Highland Hall Waldorf School.
