Our Mixed-age Kindergarten classes are open to children from between the ages of three and six and a half years, with children often attending for two to three years. Each of our three mixed-age kindergarten classes has a Waldorf-trained lead teacher and an assistant.
Mixed-age kindergarten program options include:
Half-day option: Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
Full-day option: Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 2:45 pm
Additionally, mixed-age kindergarten students are eligible for aftercare until 5:30 pm.
While we will support families to the extent that we are able, teachers at the Charlottesville Waldorf School are not responsible for toilet training children. Responsibility for toilet training rests with the parents, and children are expected to be toilet trained prior to admission to CWS with the exception of those entering the 2-year-old class.
Children turning five during the school year are expected/required to attend school 5 days a week.
