Children Thrive in Cohousing
Parents want their children to be healthy and happy (and successful wouldn’t hurt). Growing up in cohousing gives kids a big leg up, surrounding them with a close-knit community and strong support network. Finding the same encouraging, safe space in the school environment is also fundamental.
As it turns out, the values embedded in a Waldorf education are identical to those in cohousing communities. Consider this list: Support, connection, and personal growth. Inclusiveness. Health and enrichment. Fun. These are the priorities at Fair Oaks EcoHousing.
Does your child attend a Waldorf school? Take a closer look at Fair Oaks EcoHousing! You will find that our vision and values overlap, and the benefits of living in our dynamic, intergenerational community will enrich and sustain your child. (And the Sacramento Waldorf School is only 1 mile away.)
