Since 2011, the Saltwater Waldorf School, an independent school, has provided education in the Comox Valley. We offer a Parent and Child program (we are taking applications now), Preschool, Mixed-aged Kindergarten, and Grades 1-6. 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. Click here to find out more about this important document.
