Discover Waldorf education in Wauconda at Water’s Edge Waldorf School
Children thrive at Water’s Edge Waldorf School! We believe that children deserve an inspired education that allows them to grow up balanced, confident, and able to think for themselves. Our developmentally-based curriculum includes music, arts, daily outdoor play for all students, multi-sensory and experiential learning, and academic excellence without high-stakes testing. When children relate what they learn to their own experience, they are interested and fully engaged, and what they learn becomes their own. Water’s Edge Waldorf School is designed to foster this kind of learning.
Our mission is to provide the richness of Waldorf Education to families who seek it. We strive to prepare children to meet the challenges of our world and the future with clarity of thought, a caring heart and confidence to initiate the positive transformation of society.
We invite you to explore our web site to learn more about Waldorf education, our philosophies, methods and benefits. If you have any questions at all, or would like to visit us for a tour, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
