Please enjoy the videos our teachers have created to share some of the aspects of the Waldorf teaching philosophy that inspire them here along with educational highlights offered at the WISE.  We hope you enjoy watching the videos and that they answer some of your questions about why this school might be the right choice in education for your family.

“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 Waldorf Education Society of Edmonton respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Amiskwacîwâskahikan, or Edmonton, on Treaty 6 territory. The land that the Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton sits on was once Métis scrip land. Scrip was given to Métis people in exchange for their land rights. The land of Treaty 6 territory was once a gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples, including the Cree, Blackfoot, Metis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant communities. Our faculty, staff, board and school community commits to working toward reconciliation and decolonization.

Early childhood is a revered time in a Waldorf school: unpressured, simple, and full of wonder. Only a few spots remain in our parent-child, nursery, and kindergarten programs. Contact registrar@thewise.ca or call (780) 466-3312 for more information.
