"Receive the children in reverence, educate them with love, let them go forth in freedom.”
Primrose Hill School meets children as unique individuals, providing them with a safe, nurturing environment that feeds the senses and inspires the imagination. We offer a social experience that engenders compassion and responsibility. We work with the curricular indications of Waldorf education, with an emphasis on engagement with the natural world, our garden and farm animals, and we encourage curiosity, creative thinking, and confidence to support a lifelong love of learning.
We are currently enrolling students from early childhood (Nursery and Kindergarten) through seventh grade for 2019-20, adding a grade each year.
Our 7.5-acre campus in Rhinebeck, NY houses two beautiful, newly renovated schoolhouses, friendly farm animals, an expansive vegetable garden, natural play-yards, and a barn.
Our Nursery and Kindergarten classrooms set the stage for future learning and help children build social skills.
Our grades curriculum meets children at every stage of development through academics, arts, movement, strong relationships, and a close connection to nature.
