Employer Description
Founded in 2006, New Amsterdam School began as a grassroots alliance of educators, parents, and community leaders determined to bring the benefits of Waldorf education to Lower Manhattan. Focused initially on parent-child classes, the school expanded to develop a full early childhood program starting with toddlers and now includes an elementary program for grades 1-5. A tranquil oasis in the East Village, NAS offers a warm, home-like learning environment for children and families. With more than a dozen languages spoken, the New Amsterdam community embraces diversity, fosters inclusivity, and honors the uniqueness of each child. 

As a member of WECAN (the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America) and an Associate Member of AWSNA (Association of Waldorf Schools of North America), NAS is part of the well-established Waldorf movement that today includes over 1000 schools and 1600 early childhood programs in 58 countries. Waldorf education is the fastest-growing independent school movement in the world, and NAS embodies the innovative spirit of this progressive pedagogical approach. 
Diversity Mission Statement
New Amsterdam School supports the unfolding of each individual’s true self and aspires to awaken children, teachers, and parents alike to the needs of the world now and in the future. At New Amsterdam, we educate free individuals capable of imagining and creating an inclusive, responsive, and sustainable future. We are committed to welcoming, recognizing, and celebrating diversity in all of its forms, including, but not limited to, diversity of socio-economic background, culture, physical appearance, race, national or ethnic background, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, family structure, religion, perspective, physical disability, learning style, linguistic difference, and age. 

All children will impact the future of our society; it is our belief that our children will have a happy, healthy, and secure future only when they learn to build it together with all members of the community.
