Our youngest children begin as infants in the Rosebud Room and move up to the next room as they age and achieve developmental milestones. 

Sweet Clover Nursery provides infants and toddlers with warm, nurturing care from a staff led by a Waldorf-trained, Early Childhood professional. The children spend their days in a small, family-like group with children of different ages. Experienced and loving caregivers encourage children to develop their new sense of self in an environment designed to nurture and support their continued unfolding. The daily rhythm provides a balance between active times and rest times, nourishing each child's sense of health and wellbeing.

Sweet Clover Nursery operates on a quarterly system of four, 13-week quarters--or seasons!
