Have you heard of the Private schools named WALDORF SCHOOLS? They are located mostly in the US. But have schools in I believe over 150 countries around the world.
There's one that's literally 3 blocks away from me.
@PamGH maybe this could be one of your monthly contributions?
There are a few here. I think 4 or 5.
Our Waldorf School supports a Lakota Sioux Waldorf school and allows the Lakota to attend free of tuition. It is very similar to the way Indians were taught in the Pre- Columbus days.
My kids go to one. We were not able to get into any of the Catholic schools when my daughter was Preschool aged. So we tried a WALDORF school and now both kids have been going for 8 & 9 years. The teachers are very skilled. The kids start out in some awesome preschool groups and when kindergarten is completed they move on to First Grade. The teacher they start with will teach them from first grade to eighth grade. It's been an amazing journey. We were concerned because we thought it was going to be ultra liberal but we were pleasantly surprised that they were actually pretty conservative function wise. They honor Christianity and Judaism and teach the foundation of the classics. The entire philosophy goes back to the same type of school Albert Einstein went to as a boy in Switzerland.
You have young kids?? I thought you were a grandpa! 😂😂
Ha ha, very funny. :)
Portlandia is one of my favorite shows. LMAO
may I ask the cost of tuition for these schools?
If you pay full price without assistance it is about $800/month. But all schools are slightly different.
My favorite part of the school is the Bond created between the Teachers, Students & Family. During the Summer before 1st grade, the teacher visits each students home(28 kids) to asses the students family and to become acquainted with the family. After High School, 95% go on to College & 1/2 of those are Ivy League Schools.
There is a public charter Waldorf elementary school near me.
Yes there are Public schools all over trying to mimic the Waldorf way of teaching, but we get a ton of kids who leave because of the expense and then come back a year later because of the entire system and mentality is very hard to duplicate.
I've heard of The Waldorf Hotel and a Waldorf salad but not a Waldorf school.
