Greener Childhood Associated With Happier Adulthood

Social-Emotional Learning at the Vancouver Waldorf School. Children working together to build a garden box.

New research indicates that access to the outdoors in childhood is strongly associated with happiness, mental health and well-being in adulthood. That’s one of the many reasons Waldorf schools prioritize outdoor learning and recreation for our students. Outdoor spaces are great places to move, discover, and develop curiosity; they also help our students feel balanced, refreshed, and ready to learn.

We are currently accepting applications. We have a rolling admissions policy and accept students throughout the year when space is available. Join an information session or meet individually with our Admissions Coordinator to learn more about the Vancouver Waldorf School.
