What Parents are Saying

“I enjoy how Waldorf focuses on the whole child and experiential learning. I believe Waldorf Education helps foster self-confidence and inner strength in the child. Teaches beyond academic knowledge – teaches valuable life skills and gives a sense of community.”

Grade School Parent

“Some of the things we are interested in are the holistic attitude toward a child’s learning, focusing on development and long-term learning on an emotional, spiritual and intellectual level. We like that children learn through experiencing the outdoors, musical and artistic expression, home responsibilities, and being part of a community.”

Early Childhood Parent

“I love that Waldorf teaches the whole child: mind, body and spirit. I love that you teach in a way that allows all children to excel. I love that you teach an appreciation of nature and the world around us. I love that you’re more than just amazing academics — you bring depth to a child’s life and sense of self.”
