Greenwood Tree Educational Cooperative Thimbleberry Kindergarten is a four day (2 – 4 day options available for 4 year olds; minimum three day enrollment requirement for 5 & 6  year olds), mixed-age program for children ages 4 to 6 years. The program provides a gentle bridge into the classroom community based upon the principles of Waldorf Education.  We are guided by the notion that children learn best when the whole child- head, heart, and hands- is fully engaged.  Abundant opportunities for open-ended free play, lively movement and artistic expression during the preschool years provide a strong foundation for healthy physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development.
