Welcome to The Walden School. For returning and new families please join us in beginning a new school year by reading important information found in the monthly newsletters, on the bulletin board, and at the office. The classroom teachers are also happy to help you with information you may need to know. Please feel free to speak with them. If you have made any changes during the year in your address or phone numbers, please make sure all of your emergency phone numbers and contacts are up-to-date. Additionally, your child may have immunization additions which will need to be recorded. Please see the office staff to update that information.



If you're looking for a solution to your early childhood needs, or a program for your school age children, the answer can be as easy as a visit to the Walden School. Your children as young as 6 weeks of age and up to as mature as 12 years have a special place here where a nurturing environment and caring staff help your children grow and flourish.

Our philosophy makes the Walden School a child friendly environment. Parents too will find that being involved with the Walden School is more than a partnership in raising their children.

   
Open communication with staff and directors is encouraged, and a variety of activities are planned especially to involve parents in special events in their child's school activities. Our emphasis is directly and indirectly focused on children's self esteem through developmentally appropriate skill practice and activities.

Our preschool and pre-kindergarten classes help ready children for their successive years in elementary classes. Our kindergarten program successfully melds phonics and whole language programs to develop strong reading skills; along with our hands on Math Their Way programs, children develop a solid base on which to continue to learn. Our first through second grades continue to excite children about learning as well as helping to develop strong study skills.
Smaller classes and more one to one contact with their teacher during the day, help children succeed in mastering subject matter.
   


Meet the Teachers
At the beginning of each year, we encourage our parents to visit their child’s classroom. We will hold a “Meet the Teacher” evening for parents to learn more about the program. The teacher-parent general meeting will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. (except for 2nd Grade) and child care will be available. Please check the newsletter for your child’s Meet the Teacher date.
