"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 and 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 to encourage the curiosity, creative thinking, and confidence that support a lifelong love of learning.
We are currently enrolling students from early childhood (Nursery and Kindergarten) through sixth grade for the 2017-18 school year 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, 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.
