Heart In Hand, a Waldorf preschool, has been in Portland’s Concordia neighborhood since 2002. Nestled in the heart of the Alberta Arts District, we are proud to be part of a nurturing community. We have been a full member of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association (WECAN) since 2010.
Hands to Work and Hearts to Love! Whether baking, sweeping, planting or washing windows, children love to take part in the caring activities of life.Â At Heart in Hand we take that innate desire and use it to help develop the healthy relationship to one’s self, one’s friends and environment. The first step towards making a better world is made by a gesture of love.
NOW OFFERING SPANISH
For many children, preschool is their first experience away from their parents. Heart in Hand creates a warm environment where learning is hands on play! The mornings are filled with all the elements we love of Waldorf education; creative play, domestic arts, storytelling and puppetry and seasonal activities. Each child brings a unique gift to earth and we curiously watch it develop.
Open to parents with children from infants to four years olds on Wednesday afternoons from 3 to 5pm. These classes introduce families to the wonderful Waldorf curriculum and parenting approach. Children experience a mini preschool day, and parents get to connect and discuss weekly parenting topics.
