Our program features a mixed-age, family-style environment for children ages 1 to 4 years. This offers children the advantage of being one of the youngest and growing into one of the oldest children, as they continue in our care. We
provide a rich program with many of
the activities of the Waldorf nursery/kindergarten, and we welcome toddlers.
We are able to accept two children under age 2 each day.
We offer both morning and full-day programs:
Mornings, 8:30-12:30; Full day, 8:30-3:30;
There are 5-day, 4-day, 3-day and 2-day options:Days are flexible - check with us for availability.
We provide nutritious lunches of organic whole grains and vegetables, and
parents provide organic fruit for our morning snack. Most of our cooking and baking is gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free. We can accommodate many food restrictions (though my home is not nut-free nor entirely gluten-free).
How to Enroll
- Please email or call us at 303-442-0998 to request an information packet and to arrange a visit. We typically arrange
initial visits for the end of the day (between 4:00 and 4:30 pm) so we can answer
your questions; please plan to bring your child (other family members
are also welcome!). After this initial visit, it is also possible to
arrange to visit with your child some morning before (or after) making
your decision to enroll.
- When you decide to enroll, please return the application form along
with the $25 application fee, the contract and the deposit fee*, which
assures your child’s place.
- Once your contract is in, you are part of the StarSong
community and are invited to all parent evenings and festivals, even
before your child starts. As they transition into the group, we will set up some visits for you and your child to come together for part of the morning. Shortly before or within the first few weeks
following your child’s starting to attend, we can also arrange to visit you
in your home, if desired. This home visit provides an opportunity for us to start
to know your child and family better. We love to see your child “in
action,” and children are always excited to show us their room and toys.
This strengthens the child’s bridge between home and school and also
gives us an opportunity to discuss any questions on the application
form, such as current nap and eating patterns, any allergies, and so
We’re looking forward to meeting you and your child and hope to work together with your family! Please email or call us if you have any questions (303-442-0998 or 720-203-9694).
