Live Oak Waldorf School, offering a full, authentic Waldorf curriculum on a beautiful 40-acre campus, is excited to announce reduced tuition plans making this excellent education more affordable than ever!  Founded in 1977, with small classes, dedicated teachers, and the time-tested wisdom of the Waldorf curriculum, our school inspires a love of learning.
Waldorf education is developmental, working with the physical, emotional, and cognitive stages of a child's development.
Our students receive a unique education, one that stimulates intelligence, encourages creativity, develops practical skills, and prepares students for success in high school, college, and life.
We have traditional Preschool, Kindergarten, Elementary, and Middle School classes as well as a Parent-Child Program for children ages birth-4 years.  We also have a Homeschool Program for all grades including our new Outdoor Homeschool Kindergarten Program.
 Open their hearts to the joy of learning! Call today for more information or to schedule a tour!
