Our new school year is in full swing with the gentle routine of our preschool-kindergarten.
Our children have been singing songs, making crafts and planting bulbs and seeds in expectation of spring flowers and growth. We too, are planting seeds as we look to the future growth of our lovely school.
The Rock Rose School for Creative Learning is a unique school because it provides
a gentle, nurturing beginning for our children. We believe it is important to cultivate
within our children a lifelong love of learning and a connection to their world and its
inhabitants. By following the tenets of the Waldorf philosophy, our school honors the
wholeness of each child and fosters their abilities to think clearly, feel compassionately
and act purposefully in the world. This nurturing introduction to schooling allows every
child to grow into their lives with a feeling of security, independence, imagination, and
an appreciation for taking on the challenges they will face in our world.
Rock Rose changes lives by offering an invaluable experience to our students. Each
child gains a positive and fulfilling sense of self-worth through our small class size and
our emphasis on developing the child as a whole. Our teachers spend an additional
three years in Waldorf training, learning the myriad skills necessary to encourage and
cultivate the growth of each child. They act as a loving guide to these dear children as
they begin their educational experience.
Rock Rose tuition covers 70% of the cost of educating a child in the Waldorf tradition.
The balance of the cost is made up by voluntary contributions by those who can
appreciate this type of program. Please consider making a contribution to support
this unique and worthy educational endeavor. Rock Rose is a 501(c)(3) organization
and your contribution is tax-deductible; a reply envelope is enclosed for your use.
Your contribution will help to assure the future growth of our school and that this
extraordinary educational program is available to as many children as possible.
We are so grateful for your support and please know that a gift at any level makes a
difference as we work to change the lives of our children at Rock Rose.
