​​​​Curriculum & Philosophy
Rainbow Garden Preschool implements multiple educational philosophies into the daily and annual curriculum. Our teachers are educated in traditional, Montessori and Waldorf education systems.

What does this mean for your child?

Nurturing the whole child through life experience, nature, science, arts and play. Through our daily routine and work cycles your child will become prepared for Kindergarten and beyond.

     There are many ways Montessori and Waldorf are different. These are a few of the ways they are similar.

Montessori and Waldorf are the fastest growing educational systems in the world today. Both are based on many years of experience, with all kinds of children, the world over. Both have great respect for the child as an individual, spiritual, creative being. Both stress the importance of the natural environment, absence of plastic, keeping in touch with nature and natural materials. Both systems base their education on the needs of the child, believing that this will lead to meeting the needs of society as a whole. Both schools provide a rich variety of art, music, dance, and theater at all ages.
