Cedarwood Waldorf SchoolEducation for the Whole Child
Cedarwood students are curious and engaged critical thinkers and doers who care about creating a better world. Children in pre-kindergarten through grade 8 are nurtured by a developmentally thoughtful pedagogy, with hands-on experiences both in the classroom and off-campus. We value a contemporary approach to Waldorf education, in which new ideas, practices, and styles are incorporated to support and enrich the student experience, including language programs in Spanish and Japanese, and a focus on experiential learning. From early childhood through the completion of eighth grade, our students are met with openness to possibility, given time to develop resiliency, and taught skills to turn challenges into opportunities.
