The Saltwater Waldorf School, an independent school in the Comox Valley, has provided Waldorf inspired education since 2011. Our school became a ‘Developing Waldorf School’ in July 2014. We are proud members of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America (WECAN).
The Saltwater Waldorf School offers a Parent and Child program, Preschool, Mixed-aged Kindergarten, and Grades 1-6. We will offer Grade 7 in the 2015-16 school year.
Dedicated to nurturing the whole child, our developmentally based curriculum is rich in the arts, music, movement and contact with nature including festival celebrations.
The combination of academic subjects and seasonal celebrations brings joy and meaning to the school day. Saltwater Waldorf School’s education is rooted in the ideals and insights of Rudolf Steiner, who stated:
“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings, who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives.”
Recently AWSNA or the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America created a document called Waldorf Education: Diversity and Inclusiveness, A Declaration of British Columbia Waldorf Schools and Institutions. Our schools and institutions are committed to using these principles to promote an environment of safety, acceptance and respect for all students.
