Welcome to WISE

“Receive the child in reverence, educate the child with love, let the child go forth in freedom.” ~ Rudolf Steiner

At the Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton, we strive to educate the Whole Child; Head, Heart and Hands. Our Early Childhood programs nurture the wonder-filled imaginative world of young children, building a strong base for future learning and development. Art, movement and culture are infused into all academic study. Nature and natural materials are integrated into the learning experience. Our goal is to explore the child’s full potential, while nurturing their self-esteem by encouraging the development of a whole range of additional skills. In this way, a lifelong love of learning is cultivated by nourishing the spirit of curiosity.

The Organic Box
For the past seven years, the good people at the Organic box have donated the fresh vegetables and fruit for our Gateways conference! If you are looking for the convenience of a home delivery service, the Organic box is amazing, and by supporting them, you support so many of the good things they do in their 'beyond the box campaign'. Thank you, Organic Box! We <3 you!
