ATTEND FRIDAY EVENING’S KEYNOTE PRESENTATION
Give Yourself Space! With Jaimen McMIllan

Tickets are $25
Available in advance at the school office or at the door. Payment is by cash only, please.

Doors open at 6:45pm, Presentation begins at 7:15pm

This interactive presentation will deal with something we are so surrounded by, that it is often overlooked altogether: Space. Spacial Dynamics® grew out of the study of mastery, noting that masters of any discipline, art, or activity all use this elusive element. Spacial Dynamics studies the fluid relationship between human beings and the space around us. It teaches us how to optimize that relationship, helping both children and adults create the space they need to move forward with greater ability towards a healthier whole. Through this introduction to the discipline of Spacial Dynamics, one can begin to use space as a catalyst to effect change!

Come. And give yourself space…for a change.

Jack Petrash TED Talk
Educating Children For The Journey: Jack Petrash at TEDxRockCreekPark




PREPARING FOR LIFE The New York Times sparked national media coverage with its front page story on why Silicon Valley parents are turning to Waldorf education.

This film picks up where that story left off. Preparing for Life takes viewers inside the Waldorf School of the Peninsula where the focus is on developing the capacities for creativity, resilience, innovative thinking, and social and emotional intelligence over rote learning. Entrepreneurs, Stanford researchers, investment bankers, and parents who run some of the largest hi-tech companies in the world, weigh-in on what children need to navigate the challenges of the 21st Century in order to find success, purpose, and joy in their lives.



EDUCATION Waldorf education addresses the learning needs of the whole child, developing: clarity in thought, balance in feeling and conscience and initiative in action.

The Waldorf approach recognizes that children have distinct, age-related educational and emotional needs that unfold through stages of their development.

BALANCED To meet these needs, the Calgary Waldorf School's rich and challenging curriculum carefully balances academic, artistic and practical activities to stimulate intelligence and encourage creativity.

NURTURING Our nurturing social environment helps children develop exceptional interpersonal skills, self-confidence and self-reliance, fostering their own personal integrity and sense of social and environmental responsibility.

INTEGRATED The Calgary Waldorf School is an independent private school founded in 1985. It offers Parent and Tot programs, Preschool and Kindergarten and Grades One through Nine.

Have a look around our website to explore the unique world of Waldorf Education and discover the advantages it can bring for the growth and development of your child.
