Island Waldorf School is situated in a pristine woodland setting surrounded by a land trust of 100 acres some 31 miles northwest of Seattle, WA. The school is a community of children, their parents, teachers and friends coming together for the education of our children and to serve the common good in our world. We offer classes ranging from Parent/Child to 8th Grade, each designed to meet the requirements of children in each phase of their development. Teachers typically guide one class through all eight years of schooling. This long association allows the creation of a family-like intimacy in the classroom, nurturing each child--body, soul and spirit--that they might bring their individual gifts into the future. Together they journey through an arts-integrated academic program that recapitulates the social and cultural development of humankind, awakening interest in Self and Other.

Parent-Child Program: Dewdrop & Rosebud
Whidbey Island Waldorf School offers on-going multi-week sessions throughout the school year for parents and their children up to 3 years old. Our Rosebud and Dewdrop programs create a warm, nurturing, and supportive environment in which parents and their children can discover the joy of family. Parents are guided through child observations while children are invited to join free and imaginative play. Circle time offers songs, verses and movement for parents and children to experience together. A wholesome snack nourishes the body and a simple puppet story nourishes the soul. Parents and teachers thus work together to create a gentle transition from home to school. In addition to the weekly playgroups, parent evenings and articles are offered for parenting support. Rosebud and Dewdrop parents are also invited to join the larger school community during events such as seasonal festivals and adult education workshops.
