Welcome to Kinderhaus!

Raking the Leaves at KinderhausKinderhaus is a Waldorf-inspired, outdoor preschool and kindergarten for 3-6 year olds in Decorah, Iowa, that provides a warm and nurturing environment for young children in our community to learn.

Kinderhaus strives to develop the whole child: emotionally, socially, artistically, and cognitively.  Our goal is simple: to create an oasis in which children find the security and opportunity to develop into creative, imaginative, cooperative, self-motivated learners for the future.

We’re glad you’re here, and hope this site helps you get a feel for our school.  Please feel free to send us a note or give a call with any questions.

Kinderhaus News and Notes

Full Days Now Available!

We are excited to announce that we will be offering afternoon care for the 2017-2018 school year!

Children who stay at Kinderhaus for the afternoons will eat their lunches brought from home, then settle into a peaceful rest time, accompanied by stories, music, and a special blessing for each child.  After rising from their rest, the children and Ms. Kristin will find home-like projects to work on, such as baking or gardening, and will finish their time together in free play.

Afternoons will run from 12:15-3:00.
