Our Mission is to nurture and respect the innate development of the young child within our nature-based preschool. Guided by the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, Founder of Waldorf Education, we emphasize free play within a rhythmic structure to provide a sense of purpose, predictability, and peace. As a community, we strive to engage our hearts, hands, and minds in meaningful work. The Garland School is a non-profit organization. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender expression, familial status, and national or ethnic origin and we are committed to fostering a fully inclusive school community.
