We visited this amazing property recently and we were so enchanted by it! Once there, my children found stations to encourage natural curiosity, animals to learn about and interact with, and an expansive area left wild for exploration and adventure. Silvana offered the perfect combination of guidance and hands off supervision so that our children were able to play freely, develop naturally and feel empowered all while being engaged and encouraged. Her gentle, steady way with children is an inspiration! Safety is a priority as well, and children are well informed of the rules and guidelines so that they can take an active role in being responsible for their own well being (of course they are directly supervised, but never nagged!) We have a timid child and a wild child and both of their needs were met here.

Rosewood Nature School, is the fist grassroots Waldorf Initiative in Charlotte, NC. We are located on two acres of a developing homestead in the outskirts of Charlotte surrounded by a healthy shallow running creek, enchanted forest, and a mini Farm.
Rosewood peaceful setting has its own quaint appeal and rural flair yet we’re only 25 minutes from Uptown Charlotte.
Because we are a home-based program, the indoor space of the Rosewood Cottage is intimate, warmth and comfortable. The Cottage, has conserved his simple and cozy home-like appearance intentionally so children and their families can feel welcome in their home away from home.
Our intention, is to offer to all our children and their families an environment as close to ‘at home’ as possible facilitating the best elements of care found within a healthy family.
