An Introduction to Waldorf Education and Anthroposophy

A parent education series
  • Why do Waldorf students spend so much time drawing and painting?
  • Do all Waldorf schools share the same curriculum?
  • Do Waldorf teachers actually teach anything academic?
  • What is anthroposophy and why do Waldorf teachers talk about it?

Enrolling your child in a Waldorf school can lead to a lot of questions and a great deal of discovery!

The Waldorf movement grows out of an impulse to find a healthy way for human beings to interact with each other and come together as a community.  Waldorf schools often boasts a thriving community that enriches, educates, and supports the whole family.

At IWS, we are working hard to develop a set of activities that help parents know more about our school’s ethos and practices. By doing so, we hope to connect our parents to the Waldorf curriculum and create a stronger support system for our students that spans from school to home.

We are now offering a 4-workshop parent education series to our current and prospective parents as well as the public at large. We welcome anyone who is interested in knowing more about anthroposophy and Waldorf education!
