Early Birds & AftercareWaldorf extended-day programs offer a rich program for busy families.
Our free Early Birds program and flexible, fee-for-service Aftercare program help families manage a wide range of busy schedules.
Following the CDC and health department guidance in response to COVID-19, we are unable to offer the Early Birds program to our families at this time. We will keep our community informed as to when it will be safe to offer this program again.
Note: There are very limited spaces available in the Children's Garden aftercare program. Please contact Linda Zandler before registering.
Flexible Aftercare offerings can be structured to meet the needs of each family. Students may attend Aftercare one to five days a week, or on an as-needed drop-in basis. Families must register for Aftercare online.
The Forest Explorers program at the Waldorf School of Baltimore is an important facet of our school community. At WSB, we recognize that today’s children are not spending as much time in natural environments as former generations. Our Forest Aftercare program is designed to provide a safe space for children to cultivate a deep bond with the more than-human world. Students enrolled in the Forest Explorers program spend most of their time outside. Free play and nature exploration are key aspects of our program. We are outside nearly every day – rain, snow, or shine!
Aftercare accommodates students with homework. During severe weather warnings or thunderstorms, children participate in indoor activities, crafts, and board games.
Our Forest Aftercare Coordinator, also teaches Nature Studies to our lower school students, and works with our middle school students on special projects ranging from hydroponics to community outreach, and manages our school’s many sustainability initiatives. Meet Our Forest Aftercare Staff
