Our program is cooperatively developed to meet the needs of families interested in Waldorf-Steiner education, alternative, democratic, and community education, and to address gaps in conventional schooling.

Our program is motivated by trust in each child’s wonder in the world and their innate desire to learn through imitation and self-directed free play. It builds on our understanding of their remarkable ability to learn from each other, and the desire to offer them a wide range of emotionally connected activities, in a natural environment, led by mindful and attentive instructors. We work to hold a space of safety and belonging, to create the right conditions for both free and supported learning, full of rich opportunities for stimulation and development.

We believe in the educational advantages of multilingual and multicultural learning environments, and we encourage each of our instructors and parent participants to also introduce material in their mother tongues. Our present team richly communicates in Greek, English, and Russian. For our afternoon program especially, we implement a daily rhythm that allows for mixed age groups as much as possible, prioritising education of the head, hands and heart, emotional literacy, closeness with nature, and seasonal traditions and customs.
_________

Our Morning Program (Weekdays 8:00-13:00) begins Monday September 16th.
Our Afternoon Program (Mondays and Wednesdays, 1:30-18:00) begins Wednesday October 7th.
Please fill out a separate form for each child.

*****Our Programs*****

**Morning Rhythm - Parent and Child Club for ages 0-3 (Weekdays 8:00-13:00)
Parents who wish to stay with their child until it is accustomed and integrated in our school are very welcome to do so. Where possible we encourage parents to stay with their children until they are ready, usually around age 3, and that they provide beautiful examples of participation, productivity, and learning. - 250€ monthly

**Morning Rhythm for ages 3-6 (Weekdays 8:00-13:00)
Free Play, Circle-time and Weekly Rhythm in line with Cyprus seasons, nature, and culture. Parent attendance is optional depending on the readiness of the child. The group is developed under the mentorship of Austrian Waldorf Kindergarden expert Erika Weiser, with Marina Zhebina as lead teacher, and Chrystalleni Loizidou and Olga Zoumbareva-Zamba as assistant teachers. Mindful parents are welcome to stay with us and contribute to our beautiful atmospheres. - 320€ monthly

**Afternoon Program (Mondays and Wednesdays to begin with, 1:30-18:00)
Our children have an abundance of energy and thirst for activity. We have a variety of useful and meaningful tasks for them to contribute to and enjoy, and give ample opportunities for them to pursue their linguistic, literacy, arithmetic, nature-observing and construction-related developmental interests.
We invite parents and other experts from our community to develop, together, a rhythm that includes rest, free play, individual or group instruction in various subjects according to demand, organised games, and access to creative materials. We aim to address our childrens’ needs all in one place, in a warm setting that enables a sense of stability, security, and belonging. We plan for this to include healthy snacks and meals prepared in community, gardening, arithmetic games, singing, circus arts and acrobatics, building with natural materials, drumming, dance and joy, woodworking, fine arts and crafts, animal care, and of course cleaning and tidying together. Special guests will be joining us regularly and more specialised activities (such as individual instruction in musical instruments such as violin, piano, and guitar) may be organised according to demand and at additional cost. - Suggested contribution for our basic program: 70€ monthly contribution for one afternoon per week and 120€ for two

Required
Meal preferences and dietary requirements
Snack and meal times are central to Waldorf-Steiner pedagogy. Please specify any known allergies.
Which of the following Working Groups would you like to contribute to?
We clean communally on a schedule, and we invite families to contribute to the school each in their own way. We love telling the story of a Parliament member who was late for an interview and explained that it had been his turn to clean his son's kindergarten. Contributing to the cleaning and upkeep of the school is less about lowering costs and more about making labour around the school the work of love and personal care, giving a beautiful and continuously blossoming example for our children.
Please be aware that this is a community initiative with heartfelt values, organised in preparation for a school, and still in the process of filing for official permits and licenses. *
Please take a look at our Health and Well-being Guidelines

Do you have any additional requirements or is there another way you would like to contribute to our school?
Our aim is to grow and strengthen our community of families that support each other in learning, to raise the quality of what we can offer our children, and collectively reduce the costs and compromises made for their education. Please join us in donating or exchanging skills and time
