Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able out of their own initiative to impart purpose and direction to their lives.
Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf Education


Dear Community,
Our Spring Auction is now live online at:


WIWS is committed to keeping Waldorf Education accessible to all families. 

Each year, our school hosts an online auction to provide financial aid to 60% of our students, promote local businesses and create a fun, easy way for our community to support. 

"I rejoice that my children are met each day by our outstanding and dedicated faculty, by the juicy curriculum, and by the spirit of this education which, at its heart, has true respect for the soul of the child I am so grateful to have found this fertile soil for their eager, budding selves."
Sarah Walston – Parent –

about Waldorf Education!    

"Balance is a key word in our education. A child is not some cerebral machine stuck behind a desk to be stuffed with facts and information. A child is an awakening intellect, a burgeoning emotive being, and a being of the will--the will to live, discover and grow. Any education worthy of the name must address itself to all three of these faculties in the name of wholeness and health."

More About Waldorf

Outdoor Education at Its Finest

Outdoor Forest Kindergarten at WIWS!

Reverence for nature and honoring of her seasons and cycles are part and parcel of a Waldorf education. In keeping with this spirit of reverence and in accordance with our strong support of play-based Early Childhood education, our Kindergarten students enjoy significant time out-of-doors. 

Our young students in the Sunflower Kindergarten begin their days inside with an art or craft, and then go outside for walks and play on the beautiful 100-acre forest preserve upon which our beautiful campus is situated. 

Students in the Golden Forest Kindergarten spend all their time outside on the land, playing, singing, moving, walking and at least one day a week, roasting potatoes!
