COPLEY — Spring Garden Waldorf School, 1791 Jacoby Road, will offer several winter tours of the facility to demonstrate the long-standing Waldorf tradition of how educators strive to follow a multi-disciplinary approach to teaching, supported by modern-day scientific research about successful learning, according to school officials.

Students from Spring Garden’s Early Childhood program play outside three times a day in rain or shine, as shown at right, say school officials.

An Open House will take place Jan. 13 from 1 to 3 p.m. In addition, The Walk Through the Grades events offer parents a unique opportunity to see how the teachers employ the school’s innovative, Finnish-style approach to education, which gives children the opportunity to learn through a wide variety of experiences, increasing depth of understanding, as well as intersecting with individual learning styles, according to Spring Garden officials. The dates include: Jan. 16, Feb. 13 and March 13 at 9 a.m.

For more information, contact Amy Hecky, director of admissions, at 330-666-0574 or via email at admissions@sgws.org, or visit www.sgws.org.
