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! 



To read more about Forest/Outdoor Kindergartens, please see our Nursery and Kindergarten information, under Education Programs in the headers above.
Thank you!


"Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility - these three forces are the very nerve of education."
Rudolph Steiner
