Essential worker child care available at Spring Creek

EYC opens again for Sea to Sky Child care

UPDATE as of April 1: Closed until further notice due to a lack of demand. Contact admissions@whistlerwaldorf.com if you do require care. If we have enough interest, we will re-visit offering care to essential service workers.

In cooperation with Waldorf’s wonderful ECE teachers and assistants, we have decided to re-open the Early Years Centre in Spring Creek to serve the community-wide purpose of providing child care to essential service workers during the COVID-19 crisis.

Here are some details:

  • EYC will re-open Monday 30th March from 7:45am – 5pm
  • We provide service for up to 16 children a day, 30month – school age.
  • Little Cedars at the Spruce Grove School will remain closed for now.
  • You do not need to be currently enrolled in Waldorf to enroll in this community initiative.

If you are an essential worker who absolutely needs child care during this time, please email us as soon as possible.

If you have other options that would allow your children to stay home, we kindly request that you pursue every option first as there is limited spaces.

Please view more details and FAQs to determine whether you qualify as an essential worker and if this is what you require.

EYC Opens today! Thank you to the community!

Today the Whistler Waldorf School Early Years Centre in Spring Creek officially opened its doors! This opening marks the end of months of preparations and countless hours of work.  It also marks the beginning of more quality early childhood programming in our community.

We wish to once again gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia, the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation, the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Community Foundation of Whistler. Many individual donors also supported this important initiative by giving generously at the Whistler Waldorf School fundraising gala held this past June. THANK YOU!

In addition, we’d like to acknowledge the ongoing support of MLA Jordon Sturdy, WCSS Director Jackie Dickinson and Roger Weetman of the RMOW. Their letters of support helped strengthen the Whistler Waldorf School’s provincial grant application allowing us the opportunity to operate the new childcare centre. Gratitude also goes out to the Sea to Sky Community Services Society for their patience and flexibility as the facility lease holder – we are excited to be sharing the building with other local not-for-profit organizations doing great work in our community including Zero Ceiling and Howe Sound Women’s Centre.

Through the generous efforts of all the above, the Whistler Waldorf School Early Years Centre is excited to open its doors and enthusiastically welcomes you to come and take a peek!
