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.
