The Garland School is an independent nursery and kindergarten school in Brattleboro, Vermont. Founded in 2009, we are a developing member of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America.
Our philosophy is grounded in a nature-based curriculum that focuses on trusting children's innate capacity for learning and support this capacity with outdoor exploration, purposeful work, and imaginative and free play within a strong daily rhythm.
We serve children ages 1-5, offering full- and half-day options. A wholesome organic breakfast, lunch and snack are served daily. We also offer eight weeks of summer camp!

Our Mission is to nurture the innate development of the young child within our nature-based preschool. Guided by the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, Founder of Waldorf Education, Biodynamic Gardening, and Anthroposophy, we emphasize free play within a rhythmic structure to provide a sense of purpose, predictability, and peace. As a developing community, we work 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, and national or ethnic origin and we are committed to fostering a fully inclusive school community.
