Annual Giving

Waldorf education continues to prepare students for an ever-changing world. Our curriculum emphasizes the power of play and being in nature, the depth and breadth of human history, and learning to collaborate; all woven through with the idea of a greater connection. Waldorf students continue out into the world with the skill of seeing beauty in all things and the art of the practical.

Giving is a human connection, a meaningful way to make a difference. Funds raised through Annual Giving help to build the resilience of the school to weather challenging times, to provide exceptional experiences for our children, and to support areas such as teacher training and accessible tuition assistance.

Please consider supporting Waldorf education here in Calgary, DONATE today.

I wanted to thank you for all of your support over the last few months. You have really made this an easy transition given the circumstances. It is clear how much effort you have put in personally to ensure the children continue to have a Waldorf experience. I have so appreciated learning some of how Waldorf teaches our children. Thank you for keeping us so organized and making it easy for us to follow the schedule and the work needing to be done every week. Who knew you were a Youtuber! I have always appreciated teachers from a far, however. having him tell us continually “Ms. Loree doesn’t do it that way” has been very humbling. I realize how connected he is to you and the structure you have provided. We are so lucky to have a teacher who is so loving and truly loves what she does. We are so blessed that you teach our son every day.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

I hope you are now able to spend quality time with your family. Enjoy your summer!

New Waldorf 100 Film – “Becoming…”

“Becoming…” is the third in a series of short films directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Paul Zehrer which provide an insight into Waldorf Education in the most diverse cultural, social, religious and economic conditions around the globe.

Waldorf 100 – The Film 

Waldorf 100 – The Film (Part 2) – New Release!

The theme of this new film is “Encounter, Engagement, Inclusion” and it features schools from around the globe. The particular emphasis of the film is on schools that are working in very important ways to advance the social mission of Waldorf education, such as the Community School for Creative Education in Oakland, schools in Jaffe Israel that serve both Arab and Israeli students, and the Parzival-Zentrum school in Germany which serves a high population of refugee students.

Look at all those colours! Last week Class 3 students had a colour-filled experience of dying their own skeins of yarn in their handwork class. They will later use this wool to crochet their own winter hats.

"If you've had the experience of binding a book, knitting a sock, playing a recorder, then you feel that you can build a rocket ship—or learn a software program you've never touched. It's not bravado, just a quiet confidence. There is nothing you can't do. Why couldn't you? Why couldn't anybody?" - Peter Nitze, a graduate of the Rudolf Steiner School of New York City, Harvard and Stanford, and successful engineer.

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.


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.


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.


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.

Waldorf® is a registered service mark of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and is used by agreement of membership in AWSNA.

Founded in 1985, the Calgary Waldorf School is an Accredited, Full Member School of AWSNA (Association of Waldorf Schools of North America)
