Founded in 2005 by Jone Hellésoy and Victor Krol, City Garden Waldorf School is dedicated to the protection of childhood. Now, more than ever, children need to be given opportunities to immerse themselves in the outdoors, the space to gain confidence through free play and the comfort of a warm and loving environment. Located in the Arts District of Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, the school year program offers all of these things and more through a play-based curriculum for children ages 3 – 6 years old. Each classroom is catered to young children in an age-appropriate way, fostering healthy growth – intellectually, physically and emotionally. The children’s day features indoor and outdoor free play, helping with chores, daily snack preparation, circle time, a story or puppet play told by the teacher, rest and enjoying snacks with classmates and teachers.
Children, ages 3 – 6, may attend City Garden Waldorf School five days, three days, or two days per week. Children in their Kindergarten year are required to attend five days per week in order to properly prepare them for first grade. The school day runs from 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday – Friday with a 1 p.m. pick up also available. Children stay with the same teacher and friends throughout their experience at City Garden, from their entry to school until graduation, cultivating those relationships. Aftercare is also available until 6 p.m. Visit the website for additional details.
