Whistler Waldorf School Community offers a place to feel connected with those who share similar interests and a passion for their wholesome development in this ever-changing world. It is for students, parents, teachers, staff, community members and anyone who is interested in learning more about what is a Waldorf education?, and how it might provide opportunities for them to be engaged and contribute to their own future and also, that of others. The key is connection and building relationships that support each other for the overall good of everyone. We welcome you to connect with us on social media and our blogs for more information.
