    I highly recommend Acorn Hill Waldorf School for preschool through Kindergarten (they also have a parent/child class and a parent/baby class) and Washington Waldorf School for Kindergarten (which they call “Children’s Garden” — how lovely) through 12th grade.

    We have 2 girls in the Waldorf System. One “graduated” from Acorn Hill last June and is now LOVING 1st grade at WWS. The other one is LOVING Acorn Hill (as did her sister from parent/child through Kindergarten) in the 3-day class. She’s 4 so she’ll probably just go on to the 5 day class next year.
