About our school:
The South Shore Waldorf School in Blockhouse is set on the South Shore of Nova Scotia close to the UNESCO town of Lunenburg, the charming small town of Mahone Bay, and about an hour from the city of Halifax. SSWS is a Developing Member of AWSNA and of WECAN.
The school was founded in 1996 with a handful of students and in September 2018 will have 50 students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. We have a strong mutually supportive community and endless resilience in rising to the challenges and celebrating the joys of maintaining a Waldorf school. In many ways, although we are 22 years old, we retain a pioneer spirit.
SSWS is faculty led with a teaching staff of nine strongly supported by a highly engaged parent body, a small administrative team, and an active board of trustees.
We offer a full Waldorf curriculum from K-6 as well as a weekly Parent and Tot program.
Our school has a strong early childhood program, including a kindergarten-specific class that serves as a bridge to the grades. Our school resides in a century old building situated on six acres with an organic garden, woodland area, and outdoor amphitheatre.
Our school community is vibrant and strong, and we regularly come together for festivals, parent evenings, farmers markets, social gatherings and events.
