When the global pandemic caused schools to abruptly shift to distance learning in the spring, administrators at the Waldorf School of Baltimore began making adjustments for the fall. Last week, they kicked off the school year in a different kind of way.
Students in first through eighth grades began the year with distance learning and a plan to explore subject classes in groups, back on campus, over the coming weeks. Last week, the school welcomed their youngest students – preschool, pre-K and Kindergarten – back to a campus outfitted with improved outdoor learning spaces.
“Our curriculum calls for lots of time outdoors even when we are not in the midst of a global pandemic,” said Lindsay Machak, Director of Outreach and Communications, “so we just expanded on what we were already doing.”
Take a look at their first week of school in the Children’s Garden.
The Waldorf School of Baltimore educates and inspires children to think, feel, and act with depth, imagination, and purpose. Students develop critical thinking, creativity, and intellectual awareness through a rich and rigorous curriculum.
