A school inspired by Waldorf education in mid Missouri with an intellectually rich curriculum that inspires creativity and self-discovery.
“Waldorf education seeks to create a person who loves learning for its own sake, and who is loving and compassionate.”
—Ronald E. Kotzsch

City Garden School is a new initiative in Columbia, MO inspired by Waldorf education. We have grown out of Garden Gate Preschool and remain tied to their school and community. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization. We currently teach 1st through 5th grade in a mixed age setting. We have two classrooms right in the heart of downtown in Calvary Episcopal Church. Our curriculum aims to help the child discover who he/she truly is, allowing them to explore multiple arts and modalities while feeding them with rich stories and experiences. We strive to give them a morally centered curriculum and to allow time for true learning to take place. Read more about us.
