The Waldorf curriculum is broad and comprehensive. Structured to respond to the three developmental phases of childhood - birth to 6 or 7 years, 7 to 14 years and 14 to 21 years - Rudolf Steiner stressed to teachers that the best way to provide meaningful support for the child is to comprehend these phases fully and to bring "age appropriate" content that nourishes healthy growth for the Waldorf student. Music, dance and theater, writing, literature, legends and myths are not simply subjects to be read about and tested. They are experienced. Through these experiences, Waldorf students cultivate their intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities to be individuals certain of their paths and to be of service to the world.

Nursery Program at the Presidio Campus:

Our Nursery Program is designed as an environment where the young child is surrounded by warmth, tenderness and love. The rhythmical order of daily, weekly and seasonal activities gives children a sense of security. The children's need for both movement and rest determines the arrangement of daily events and activities. Our nursery class size has a maximum of twelve children and a is led by a full-time experienced and dedicated Waldorf-trained teacher and full-time assistant. We offer two, three and five-day nursery programs.

Parent-Child Classes at the Presidio Campus:
Parent/Child classes are offered at the Tucson Waldorf School to serve families with infants and toddlers. Playgroup classes are a fun way to connect with other parents and to share the joys (and challenges) of parenting our very young children. Classes are taught once a week in eight-week sessions. The parent/infant classes are ninety minutes long and the parent/child classes are two hours long.

Mixed-Age Kindergartens at the Presidio Campus:
In Waldorf schools, the mixed age nursery and kindergarten allow children in contemporary smaller families to experience the social learning opportunity of helping younger children or being helped by older children. This sets a tone and establishes the example of cooperation that is evident on the play yard.
