School Reviews

There are so many things that we adore about this school including the calming setting of the school and the large woodland play area. The teachers provide a nurturing environment, fun activites and the children adore the non-religious festivals that are celebrated throughout the year. I can't recommend this school highly enough.

Such a nurturing and amazing place! We have been at Parzival for two years now and have LOVED IT! The teachers and staff are very focused on creating class harmony and it really shines through. All of the children are valued and integrated into a wonderful little family like atmosphere! The children have ample opportunity for outside play and follow a fantastic rythym throughout the day that allows plenty of time to do both strucutred and unstructured activites. We are confident our daughter is ready for the rest of her academic experience after attending Parzival Shield! We'll be sad to leave. :)

A beautiful setting for an early childhood Waldorf school. The curriculum is so thoughtfully created to support foundational learning and to provide a nurturing environment. It has allowed my child to develop so much confidence and eagerness for learning.
