This year, Waldorf School at Moraine Farm celebrates the past and future of the school through curriculum support and program enhancements made possible through generous donations. Waldorf School at Moraine Farm serves students and families residing from Gloucester and Newburyport through Marblehead and Lynn and beyond. Starting in nursery, the school provides a rich academic program that cultivates confidence, creative, and imaginative thinkers. “At Waldorf School at Moraine Farm our goal is to ignite each child’s passion for learning,” Erin Milner, Admissions Director explains. “We do this by focusing on how and when children develop and tailoring the curriculum to the needs of the children in each grade level. We also make sure the lessons are multi-sensory. Through drama, movement, music, handwork and storytelling, we give our students continuous opportunities to directly experience what they are learning. This approach makes learning more fun, and more effective. When you talk with our eighth graders, the results are impossible to miss—they are self-aware, self-confident, highly creative, and they are completely engaged with the world around them.” The school established its permanent home in Beverly at Moraine Farm in 2011, after years of renting space on the North Shore. With a common interest in providing wholesome, outdoor, cultural and educational opportunities to families throughout the North Shore, Waldorf School at Moraine Farm has an active working relationship with Moraine Farm partners: The Trustees of Reservations, Project Adventure, The Batchelder Trust, and Essex County Greenbelt.
