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 mystery of the javelins is one case we would love to solve....

Dear WISE community,
The Javelins are missing from the school. Does anyone know where they are? If you were the loving volunteer who moved them somewhere within the school to help make space, or offered to store them at your house until we needed them again in the spring for our Grade 5 Greek Pentathlon festival, please let administrator@thewise.ca know or call 780-466-3312.
