A Joyful Child: “Educating children through the inspiration of Waldorf Education.”
We are excited to announce that A Joyful Child located in Upcountry Maui has opened it doors and is actively enrolling families. Early Childhood Teacher, Kellina Zagouras, is a credentialed Waldorf teacher offering a preschool and kindergarten experience through the inspiration of Waldorf education.
Kellina Zagouras, states, “It is the deep love for my daughter and the children in my charge that has lead me to one of the greatest and most transformative experiences of my life, becoming a Waldorf teacher. I am passionately committed to deepening my understanding of early childhood development and developing my skills in working with young children. I believe we have created an environment here that is nurturing to young children, an environment that supports children and their families in community.
The children of A Joyful Child will experience developmental support of fine and gross motor skills through circle time and outdoor activities, oral language development support and development of emergent reading and writing skills through song, verse, and rhyme, wholesome meals, nourishing fairytales, puppet shows, finger plays, festivals, fine quality art materials, and much more.
The program is facilitated on the entire first floor of a two family lovely home. The classrooms extend into a very, very large playground-like yard, equipped with a rustic running sink and well, wooden swing set, sandbox and more.
Toys are made from natural, high quality materials that allow for creativity and imagination to flourish. One could say the toys are “open-ended toys.”
