Our program features a mixed-age, family-style environment for children 6 months to 3 1/2 years.  Children get the experience 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. (Now enrolling for March 2019)

We offer both morning,  full-day, and extended day programs:
Mornings, 8:30-12:30;  Full day, 8:30-4:00; Extended day from 4:00-5:30 on TWTh

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).  For infants under age 1, we will work with you to provide the foods your child has been exposed to at home; you may be asked to provide food, in addition to breastmilk or formula, as needed.

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 Mondays (ideally between 4:15 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 $30 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 forth.

Photo by Alyssa Kapnik SamuelWe’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).

*Please note that the enrollment deposit holds your child’s place and is nonrefundable, should your plans change for any reason. The amount is equal to and becomes the “Materials and Equipment Fee."  Please contact Ms. Julie for tuition and fee information.
