Unhurried Approach to Childhood
The Waldorf School is a non-denominational private school serving students from preschool and kindergarten through grade 8 in Lexington, MA on a historic campus adjacent to the 185-acre Great Meadows conservation land.

Parent & Child
Serving children ages 6 weeks–3 years, Parent-Child classes provide freedom of movement and self-initiated play for children, while parents, caregivers, and experienced teachers discuss child growth and development.
Nursery & Kindergarten
Our Early Childhood programs emphasize children’s freedom to engage in self-directed, imaginative play—both indoors and out—within the structure of a comforting routine.
In first grade, students begin an arts-integrated academic curriculum including the humanities, mathematics and sciences, two foreign languages, choral and instrumental music, visual and performing arts, and athletics.
In the sixth grade, content and quantity of subjects expand significantly to meet the needs of the pre-adolescent. Through an expansive curriculum, students maintain a healthy interest in the world.
