Screen Free Week

We Support National Screen Free Week!

National Screen Free Week will be held April 29-May 5, 2019. As a Waldorf school, we are proud supporters and endorsers of screen free activities, all year long! Join us in turning off televisions, computers, videos, tablets and cells, and tuning in to the world around us.

In Waldorf schools, the human voice and human speech are cultivated through recitation and storytelling; imaginative play is a pillar of the work at school from early childhood on, transformed into drama through twelfth grade; and current brain research indicates that the curriculum in a Waldorf school supports development of the whole mind through play, the arts, and rigorous academics.
