As a daily toddler childcare program, the Little Friends program brings the insight and experience of Waldorf education to the young child. Children are cared for in a mixed-age, family style setting. Daily activities focus on domestic activities such as washing, baking, crayoning, and storytelling with plenty of time for play, indoors as well as out. Unlike the pre-academic nature of the school’s Nursery and Kindergarten programs, the Little Friends program primarily emphasizes care in a nurturing environment away from home. This is a program for children ages 18 months – 3 1/2 years. The following options are available during the school year:
- Mon-Tue, 8:00am-12:00pm
- Wed-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm
- Mon-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm
- Mon-Fri, 8:00am-3:00pm
- Mon-Fri, 8:00am-6:00pm

In addition, the Little Friends program offers care during two consecutive 4-week sessions during the summer with half-day care (8:00-12:00) and full day care (8:00-6:00). For summer 2015, Session I begins June 15 and Session II begins July 13. Contact the school’s enrollment coordinator to inquire about availability or to apply for summer Little Friends care.
