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.

Update from Elevate WISE: We have had an incredible first year of Elevate WISE, and have met so many truly wonderful people via our Tours and Events. The last 'big' event of the year was a great, and we also managed to fit several smaller Tour-style events in the weekends before and after. Thus far, Elevate WISE has raised $42,800, including the events of the past few weeks. We have also received multi-year donations and pledges amounting to an additional $14,000 over coming years. How wonderful! A special thank you to all of you who have come to events, who have introduced us to people you know, and who have donated. A special thanks to all of you!
