Age Requirements

Due to the age-appropriate developmental approach of our curriculum, students begin First Grade later than in non-Waldorf schools. We believe this provides the child with greater readiness for learning, both academically and socially throughout their education.

The minimum age cutoffs for each grade are listed below:

Nursery – 2 3/4 years by September
Kindergarten – 4 1/2 years by September 1
First – 6 years old by May 31
Second – 7 years old by May 31
Third – 8 years old by May 31
Fourth through Eighth – 9-13 year olds, respectively, though other variables may be taken into account to best serve each child
