Welcome to WISE
As per the March 15th order from the Premier, all classes are cancelled indefinitely. This includes Kindergarten to Grade 9, as well as our Early Childhood programs which include Preschool and Parent & Tot.
Registrations are still being accepted during this period. Our office hours will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:30am – 12:30pm. Emails (firstname.lastname@example.org) will regularly be checked from Monday to Friday from 8:30 – 4:00pm. If you have any questions, our office staff will be happy to respond. if you would prefer a phone conversation, this can be done during the above specified office hours.
We appreciate your patience and hope your family remains healthy and safe.
Further to the announcement earlier today of the cancellation of classes at the WISE, the WESE Board has determined that all events and extra curricular activities will also be cancelled until further notice. The only exception is the bulk food order that is already in progress and food pick-up is scheduled for this coming Friday afternoon. This cancellation includes the Gateways Conference, Ottewell Farmers Market, the WESE Pub Night Fundraiser, internal committee meetings and all other activities and events. Organizers of these events are being notified so that they can also communicate to all stakeholders effectively. Events may be re-scheduled or allowed to continue to operate in coming weeks and this will be the subject of future announcements.
The WESE Board would like to acknowledge the importance of these activities to our community and the hard work of those involved in organizing them. The temporary suspension decision has not been made lightly and is a necessary and prudent response to the current COVID 19 situation.
Please stay tuned for further updates.

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.
