Toronto Waldorf School


Description

Why “...do employees of Silicon Valley giants like Google, Apple, Yahoo and Hewlett-Packard” send their children to a primary school that doesn’t use computers? (New York Times)
Founded in 1968, Toronto Waldorf School has developed a fully accredited curriculum from Parent-Infant through Grade 12. This education from a deeper perspective™ is an education for life.
We teach children how to think creatively to solve problems. We help children develop a personal connection to the world, community, nature and self. We help children become centred, having confidence to pursue life with purpose.
Toronto Waldorf School’s deeper perspective is built upon these foundations:
• Academic Integration
• The Right Thing at the Right Time
• How to Think, Not What to Think
• Appreciation of Individuality
• Environmental Stewardship
• Experiential Learning
• Commitment to Culture & Community.

Testimonials: We love that this school looks at educating the whole child. The faculty operates from a positive outlook that sees the strengths of each child; while working to develop the areas of need. This positive outlook gives the students the encouragement and healthy self-image necessary to foster self-confidence and risk taking. In her old school, our daughter would have stomach aches at the thought of attending, now she cries when the summer comes because she will miss school. - Barrett and Jennifer, Lower School Parents

We love Toronto Waldorf School because they encourage our children how to think, not what to think. How to see, not what to see. With this kind of education, the possibilities are endless. - Jamie & Roberta, High School Parents
