WALDORF EDUCATION ON THE SIMPSONS! The Simpsons featured Waldorf Education in their Season 26 Finale (Episode 22) which aired May 17. Here is a 3 minute clip from the episode.




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.
