Welcome to Whidbey Island Waldorf School

Where Goodness, Truth & Beauty Guide Us...

A discussion of Waldorf Early Childhood Education 
with educator Dyanne Harshman.

Outdoor Education at its Finest!
Reverence for nature and honoring of her seasons and cycles are part and parcel of a Waldorf education. In keeping with this spirit of reverence and in accordance with our strong support of play-based Early Childhood education, our Kindergarten students enjoy significant time out-of-doors. Next year, our young students will spend the majority of their time outside, whether on our EC play yard or on the beautiful 100-acre forest preserve upon which our beautiful campus is situated.

"Balance is a key word in our education. A child is not some cerebral machine stuck behind a desk

to be stuffed with facts and information. A child is an awakening intellect, a burgeoning emotive being,

and a being of the will--the will to live, discover

and grow. Any education worthy of the name

must address itself to all three of these faculties

in the name of wholeness and health."


~Bill Bryant, from "Waldorf Education: The Art of Awakening the Child"

"I rejoice that my children are met each day by our outstanding and dedicated faculty, by the juicy

curriculum, and by the spirit of this education which, 

at its heart, has true respect for the soul of the child

I am so grateful to have found 

this fertile soil for their eager, budding selves."


   ~Sarah Walston, WIWS parent

"It is aliveness that must be the guiding principle.
Joy and happiness in living, a love of all existence,
a power and energy for work, and imagination,
a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility...
These are the forces which are the very nerve of education."

~ Rudolf Steiner
