Peace Garden Preschool & Kindergarten
“Gan Neve Shalom”
We have an intimate mixed age group of nine 3-6 year olds. Our hours are from 9 – 1 Monday – Thursdays.
Peace Garden is a unique blend of Waldorf-inspired education and universal values that are rooted in Judaism. The spirit and beauty of each of these traditions compliment each other and imbue the children’s daily experience with the values that create a strong and loving community; gratitude, giving, respect, and kindness. Our families are of diverse traditions and spiritual paths. Our mornings follow a nurturing rhythm filled with the delight of indoor and outdoor creative play, baking, cooking, watercolor painting, arts and crafts, felting, sewing, gardening, stories, and a movement, singing and games circle. The children are nourished with the loving presence of three teachers, and healthful organic snacks and meals. Leah Avital taught in diverse classroom settings in the San Francisco Bay Area for nine years before relocating to Ashland and opening this program in 2001. She is credentialed in Early Childhood Education with a background in Waldorf education and has been loving working with young children for 25 years. For more info call Leah Avital at 541-301-2398.
