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!
Our new Early Years Centre in Spring Creek is set to open on Dec. 2nd. The newly renovated space has wood furniture and accessories and a new circle carpet to welcome the children.
“It is looking great. So much natural light and lots of space. It’s hard to see from the pictures, but it’s long with two separate play spaces, a nap room, and two bathrooms. There are also two lovely outdoor play spaces”, says Jen Dodds, Admissions Manager.
Space is still available for the 2019-20 for children 30 months to school age.
If you’re interested in having a private tour, please email Jen.
Days: 2, 3, 4 & 5 Day options available – Monday-Friday.
Months: Care is offered year-round.
Location: Sea-to-Sky Services Building @ 1519 Spring Creek Drive.
