Mother Earth School

 Mother Earth School is a year-round, all-outdoor preschool and kindergarten for children ages 3-6 years old.  MES offers summer camps for children ages 4-12, including a rite of passage program for pre-teens.  They also offer adult educational opportunities throughout the year. 

All of their programs honor the inherent connection that the human being has with the rhythms of the natural world.  In holding true to the Waldorf philosophy, each student is honored deeply as a unique being with important work to do in their lifetime.  Using permaculture principles, children participate in gardening, food preparation & preservation, caring for farm animals, natural handwork & crafts and forest exploration. These experiences teach sustainable practices as the children learn to care for themselves, each other, and the world around them. The seasonal cycles are celebrated through storytelling, puppetry, songs, verses and forest exploration.  By learning traditional skills and natural crafts, children grow to understand their capabilities, feel empowered, nourish their imaginations  and cultivate reverence for the Earth.
