Spring presents abundant opportunities to see into the world of Waldorf Education at Cedar Springs Waldorf School, 6029 Gold Meadows Road in Placerville. The best possible way to experience Cedar Springs is to visit the campus to interact with the students, teachers and community.
The staff at Cedar Springs invites the public to the campus to experience the dedication to lifelong learning with several choices of upcoming events for interested families.
Lynnette Long, CSWS parent of three students said of their first tour, “Seeing it in action spoke louder than words for me. Hearing about it over the phone or reading about it on a Website is great, too, but just doesn’t do it justice. I was completely sold that this developmental style of teaching was right for my children.”
Cedar Springs has provided academic excellence for more than 24 years serving children from 6 months through eighth grade. Through hands-on learning in a nurturing environment, CSWS students develop an ability to be independent, to problem solve and to apply their learning in practical and meaningful ways.
A comprehensive liberal arts education is offered with rigorous and developmentally appropriate math, science and language arts curriculum that engages the developing child.
Cedar Springs Waldorf School addresses the whole child, serving intellectual, physical and emotional development. Foreign language, instrumental music, woodworking and gardening also supplement the enriched CSWS curriculum.
Upcoming events will offer an overview into grades first through eighth at an open house on Saturday, April 5 from 10 a.m.-noon. Child care will be provided for this event.
There will also be a kindergarten open house on May 5 from 10 a.m.-noon.
Open houses will include discussion and demonstration of the developmental approach, classroom and campus tours, curriculum displays and question and answer with faculty and parents. Alumni students will also be available at the grades open house on April 5.
For a full picture into the day in the life of a CSWS student, the school will be hosting open classroom tours on Tuesday, April 8 and Tuesday, May 13.
Both tours are from 8:30-10:30 a.m. with a look into each classroom, a campus tour followed by a question and answer session.
Call the CSWS office at 530-642-9903 to confirm attendance at any of the open houses or tours.
Noël Robinson’s two sons transferred to CSWS last year.
“We had heard wonderful things about Cedar Springs. It wasn’t until our family stepped on campus, met the faculty, students and community that we understood that Waldorf education was for our family,” said Robinson.
