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. For more information about the Walden School click here.



The Walden School offers a variety of activities each year. Enrollment information
is available at the office and on our bulletin board.
Spaces are limited so please sign up promptly if you are interested.

Walden Community Service Corner
Once again we are so pleased to be able to tell you about the kind -hearted contributions made by The Walden School families to House of Tiny Treasures during our December Community Service Project. Each year Walden families have opened their hearts and wallets to provide much needed items for the young children and siblings served by this small school and their homeless families. The Walden families provided an outfit with shoes and socks for each child, and a toy. Forty-eight children in all had a much happier holiday thanks to your generosity. For more information see the January newsletter.

Tax Information
We will provide for you, at your request, a printout of your charges and payments for the year 2016. The Tax laws may have changed this year on what expenses are eligible for childcare deductions. Be sure to consult with your accountant about what you may deduct. A sign-up sheet for 2016 payment information is located at the front desk bulletin board.
