The Cottage Garden is a unique home-based Waldorf Day Care program, licensed for up to ten children. We offer a safe, loving environment filled with simple handmade toys and developmentally appropriate activities, all created to enhance the young child’s innate sense of learning through imitation. Our day is a balance of structure and free play. The rhythm of our daily activities offers a warm, and well-guided first playgroup experience for your pre-school child—a wonderful transition between home and school. During this still uncertain time of the Pandemic, we will be open on Mondays Tuesdays & Wednesdays, from October 1- June 16. We will be asking for monthly commitments. Monthly Tuition includes 2 hot, organic, vegetarian meals and 1 snack daily plus; diapers, laundry etc. We invite you to browse our website and send us an Application or be in touch with us if you have any questions.

Please help us spend even more time outdoors in our lovely backyard
