Welcome to the Nelson Waldorf School
More than the acquisition of information, a Waldorf education is a journey of discovery that lays the foundation for lifelong learning.

We chose Nelson BC, for its pristine outdoor environment, its friendly, safe and welcoming community, its rich artistic culture. The Nelson Waldorf School, was one of the oldest Waldorf schools in Canada, with its situation in the forest, its gymnasium, Eurythmy hall and many festivals was the picture perfect image of a well-grounded school we were looking for.Kilperik Lhobet, NWS parent
