Whistler Waldorf School Admissions

Admissions Process

Please review our admissions process below. For inquiries regarding admissions, please contact our Admissions Manager at admissions@whistlerwaldorf.com or 604-932-1885.

1. Visit Whistler Waldorf School

Attend a School Tour, Parent Education Evening or personal appointment

A School Tour views the classrooms from Early Years to Upper Grades.  It provides an overview of the philosophy and curriculum by observing classes “in action”.  There is time afterwards for parents to ask questions in an informal setting with the Tour host. >>See next tour date

On occasion the community is invited to attend Parent Enrichment Evenings at the school.  These evenings have lectures/workshops around a particular theme, may have student work on display, and will provide opportunities to speak with the teachers and visit a classroom or two. Classes are not conducted during Parent Enrichment Evenings. Consult our calendar for upcoming dates.

If attending either option is not possible, please contact our Admissions Manager at 604-932-1885 or admissions@whistlerwaldorf.com.
