The Learning Village

a sanctuary of learning

The Learning Village at SMS hosts educational programs which encourage reverence and relationship with the natural world and support integrated evolution of the whole human being.
​Circle of Seasons is a cooperative learning environment for grades 1-8, which offers a seasonally thematic, Steiner-inspired, full academic program, enriched with nature-centered activities and specialty classes.
Starseed Forest Kindergarten is a nature-centered learning co-operative for ages 3-6. Starseed offers the nurturing rhythms of Steiner-inspired early childhood education, in beautiful setting of fields, farm and forest, allowing intimate observation of the seasonal cycles.

summer camp programs

​SMS hosts a variety of spring and summer camp programs for children ages 3-16.
Our programs connect kids with the natural world and their own true nature. We provide experiences that empower growth in self-awareness and independence, inspire cooperation through community living, and foster a deeper appreciation and respect for the ecology of the earth. Inspiring skills of awareness and listening, teamwork, and empowerment as we learn:​
