OUR MISSION

The South Shore Waldorf School Association is a resource for Waldorf education in Atlantic Canada dedicated to providing Pre School & Elementary programs which offer families a viable educational alternative.

OUR VISION

We believe that through a gradual unfolding children enjoy childhood, preserve the joy of curious exploration and experience the deep satisfaction of skillful doing. We offer a learning community devoted to peacefully educating children within a non-competitive, arts enriched, academic curriculum and strive to inspire others.

If I had a child of school age, I would send them to one of the Waldorf Schools.

OUR STORY

In 1996 the South Shore Waldorf School & Kindergarten first opened its doors on an organic family farm in Conquerall Mills, NS. Five years later, the school and kindergarten moved to a century old school house in Blockhouse, NS, carefully and lovingly renovated by the families and friends of the School.

The School was founded by a handful of families looking for ‘something more’ for their children. We currently offer programs for early childhood through to grade 6 with plans to add grades 7 through 9 over the next three years.

The Waldorf curriculum promotes well-rounded development in children by exposing them to a wide variety of subjects using an interdisciplinary approach that complements the students natural abilities. Waldorf education allows for a meaningful learning process by engaging the whole child. The children develop their thinking and feeling, and a sense of purpose.

 

“The beauty of the Waldorf school is that it is designed entirely to keep children intact until they are ready to move out into the world as whole individuals.”
