"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. We encourage curiosity, creative thinking, and confidence to support a lifelong love of learning.
We are currently enrolling students in our early childhood program (Nursery and Kindergarten) and our first through fifth grade elementary school for 2019-20, adding a grade each year.
Our 7.5-acre campus in Rhinebeck, NY includes 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 curriculum meets children at every stage of development through academics, arts, movement, strong relationships, and a close connection to nature.
