Welcome to Holistic Beginnings Preschool
Holistic Beginnings is a private, alternative preschool that offers a rich, holistic preschool curriculum for children 2 - 6 years old. We are the perfect alternative for families that prefer a nurturing, loving, family-style environment over the modern-day, institutional preschool setting.
Daily life is our curriculum. We use real-life, practical activities that create a natural and organic learning experience for your child. We serve a delicious, homemade, plant-based menu that is mostly organic, natural and non-GMO. Our curriculum is further enriched with organic gardening and several field trips every month.
Although we have a unique set of guiding principles of which our school operates, we draw inspiration from LifeWays (a Waldorf-inspired philosophy) and other similar philosophies. We help your child develop a strong connection with their inner Self, with others, with nature and with the formless essence of which all of life emerges. We also help your child develop self-awareness, mindfulness, compassion and healthy-living habits. Although we are a non-religious, free-thought preschool, early-childhood spirituality is at the foundation of our curriculum.
We welcome your child into Life. We strive to help your child see that the world is good and a beautiful place in which to live. We provide opportunities for your child to develop positive self-concepts and for them to really see that the world is filled with possibility. We help your child create a living-relationship to the world by giving them ample time and space for joyful creative play and imagination.
At Holistic Beginnings, your child will enjoy a “whole-life” learning experience. They will be happy, confident, spiritually-enriched and possess a passion for learning that will last a lifetime.
