Heart Pine School

Heart Pine School is the natural outgrowth of Morning Meadow Preschool & Kindergarten and Tall Pines Homeschool Group. The Waldorf inspired curriculum has a variety of academic offerings that includes handwriting, reading, arithmetic, science, history, storytelling and foreign language.
