Our program, inspired by the Waldorf values of Reverence, Repetition and Rhythm, strives to provide a gentle transition for children, ages 3-5, from the home to a group environment.
Located in East Asheville, North Carolina, Grow With Me Cooperative is a community of young children and parents seeking to create a cooperative learning program that facilitates social, spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual growth in a loving, supportive atmosphere. We nurture a respect for self, others, and nature, while providing a safe environment for our children to stretch their imaginations and to explore their interests.
Our cooperative teaching environment offers children a continuous thread of experience, bridging school and home, fosters a deeper relationship between parent and child and helps families better integrate their child’s personal needs and interests into their school environment.
We believe children have innate wisdom, and that it is our responsibility to honor and cultivate this power within children. Therefore, imagination and play experience are keys to the young child’s development at GWM.
