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 are located in the heart of downtown in Calvary Episcopal Church. Our curriculum aims to help the child discover who 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.
