My daughter has attended Suncoast Waldorf School for five years. I chose Suncoast Waldorf, because it was the first time that I felt my daughter was treated like a child not a number. She is valued for her gifts and her creative spirit is fostered. She loves school and is excited about learning!

This school has a wonderful enviorment for any child. It is a private education that focuses on teaching through the creative arts, stories, and hands-on curriculum. Waldorf schools are international private non-profit schools. This school is helping to reform education all over the world. Many Google and Apple executives send their children to Waldorf Schools. The school does not assign homework because they feel the children should enjoy their quality time at home. Children that attend this school grow up to love school because of the way they are taught here. My daughter jumps out of bed in the morning excited because she can''t wait to get there.

When my daughter started complaining that she didn''t want to go to her Westchase school anymore - we knew she was getting bored. We looked at private educations and liked the way that the Waldorf schools taught in ways that gave children a love for learning. My daughter started the mixed age Kindergarten which includes ages 3-6 years old. The teachers are loving and nice and it took my daughter about 2 minutes to adjust to the new setting. Research the school, visit their website and then visit the school for yourself - you will quickly see it is unlike any other school.

This school is what we''ve been looking for all along. Finally, a place that''s not all about forcing things down kids'' throats, but about letting kids be kids and teaching them a lifelong PASSION for learning. When your child asks you when summer vacation is over so they can go back to school - you know they''re doing something right. My children have never been happier, learning things with their heads, hearts and hands. Love, love, love the school!
