Mountain Laurel Waldorf School is a private day-school located in the Hudson Valley, New York. We offer parent/child playgroups, preschool, kindergarten through eight grade, after-school care, and after school clubs (open to the public). As part of a worldwide association of Waldorf schools we are dedicated to bringing forth the full creative potential of each child.
Waldorf education speaks directly to children’s experience, addressing each of the three different ways we relate to the world: through the intellect, the emotions, and the will — the ability to get things done.
The Waldorf approach also recognizes that children have distinct, age-related educational needs according to their particular stages of development. Our goal is that our students meet life’s challenges with clear thinking, balanced emotions, and self-initiative.
“I learned to think here. I learned to imagine here. I love Mountain Laurel. In a strange and unsteady world, it’s a castle, a beacon. It will always be my home.”
~ Gideon Sterer (alumnus)
