Seven Stars Shop
The Seven Stars Shop is happy to announce we are now carrying Avena Botanicals herbal products. This is a small, biodynamic company that handcrafts all of their products with consciousness. A few members of our community have tried some of their products and really love them! We will be carrying some delicious glycerine tinctures that are great for children (and adults too!) such as Fairy Flower Cream, Itch Ease Spray, Rose Elixir (a favorite of ours), and other herbs for overall well-being to support you and your family.

Just a reminder of our hours: Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays after school from 2:45 to 4:00 pm, and Fridays during the Coffee Cart from 8:00 to 9:30 am. We are only open when school is in session or during special school events. If you are not able to visit the store during these hours but would like to shop and support the school, please email Tara at SevenStarsShop@yahoo.com.

OUR MISSION

Kimberton Waldorf School is dedicated to nurturing the developing child in accordance with the educational principles of Rudolf Steiner. The school supports the unfolding individuality of each child by awakening the child's capacity to meet the world, others, and the self with warmth of heart, clarity of thought, and strength of purpose. It is also our mission to build a diverse community where the spiritual in each human being is recognized and to create social forms that ennoble human striving.
