  • Spring Garden Waldorf School is a private, non-sectarian, coed school that provides education for a diverse group of children from age three through the eighth grade.
  • We are committed to educating each child so that he or she will contribute to the future of the world with clear and creative thinking, compassion, moral strength and courage.
  • Spring Garden Waldorf School is part of the long-standing Waldorf tradition, a worldwide movement putting Rudolf Steiner's educational philosophy into practice.
  • This method works because it addresses the whole child - cognitive, social, and creative - and meets the needs of each individual through a challenging and multi-sensory environment.
