No Freedom Without Development

Students who stay with the same teacher (looping) see both academic improvements as well as reductions in absences and behavioural issues.

For decades, Waldorf Kindergartens around the world have provided a natural, artistically engaging environment that encourages self-guided activity, amazement, and learning – ideal for free play. Constraint, rules, codes of conduct, and dogmas are yesterday’s world; an open and free-spirited atmosphere invites experimentation, exploration, and amazement and encourages development – in adults and children alike. Whether children have a huge urge to move and are constantly running, jumping, and wrestling, or whether they are contemplative, constantly asking questions, or building huts, there is space and time for their initiatives in Waldorf kindergartens. Waldorf Kindergarten teachers strive to work with all parents to create a suitable environment for the children’s free play. Education towards freedom and tolerance are among the most important ideals of the Waldorf Kindergarten – and of Anthroposophy. It is a question of trying to break free from dogmas precisely because human beings are becoming more and more individual and individualistic. In our time, more and more tolerance must arise, especially with regard to thoughts of religious life.

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.

Choosing a school is a significant decision in a family’s life. Our admissions process is designed to give you as much information as you need to make an informed decision about enrolling your children. Whenever possible, we encourage all families to book a visit when considering the Vancouver Waldorf School. We want to meet you! It is just as important for us to know who you are and what you are looking for in a school as it is for you to know who we are and what Waldorf education is about.
