The mission of Mancos Valley Dragonfly Preschool is to foster a love of learning and a reverence for life by providing an education inspired by Waldorf principles that honors the unique wonder and imagination of early childhood. 


Our non-profit preschool’s compassionate teachers and nature-based atmosphere create a nurturing environment for children to express their unique potential through creative and experiential activities. Through a curriculum based on the Waldorf education model, the Mancos Valley Dragonfly Preschool inspires imaginative and mindful human beings to become advocates for the earth and humanity.

Preschool will be bottom right, where X marks the spot!

Preschool will be bottom right, where X marks the spot!

It’s not about a specific type of education. It’s about life, about people and connection, about a sense of wellbeing for yourself, your friends and our world. School, especially Preschool and Kindergarten, should be a place for children to set foundations for those experiences. Let them be children, use their curiosity, keep their magical reverence. They will have plenty of time for academics later. Soon enough they will be learning about the science of seasons. Until then, let them sing about Grandfather fire and Sister rain.
