Originally a thriving little ski lodge, the Nelson Waldorf School is located on 33 forested acres, minutes from downtown Nelson. We offer AWSNA-accredited, Ministry of Education approved programs for K-8, as well as a Child Care Centre.
Mission, Vision & Values
The principal mission of the Nelson Waldorf School is to provide an education that matches the natural development of our students over the years and grades.
We are committed to provide scholastic excellence through a comprehensive academic, creative, and artistic program stimulating a sense of purpose and self-worth.
We strive to enliven and enhance the social and cultural life of our school and the surrounding community through school festivals, artistic and academic presentations.
We recognize our role in the economic life of the community and strive to develop and strengthen its health and diversity.
We attempt to make it possible for any family to enroll in the school.
We participate in sharing human and material resources in a wider field of service through affiliation with the regional and international Waldorf movement.
We are guided by the work of Rudolf Steiner and the evolution of Waldorf curriculum worldwide.
