East Bay Waldorf School
- The East Bay Waldorf School offers a developmentally-appropriate, experiential approach to education, integrating the arts and academics for children from PreK through 8th grade.
- We cultivate the spark of individuality in each child helping them grow intellectually, physically, emotionally, and creatively.
- The Waldorf curriculum is challenging, experiential, and comprehensive.
- What others consider "extracurricular," we consider "essential" to becoming a well-educated and well-rounded human being. As part of their regular classes, all students study foreign language, singing, recorder, orchestra, fine arts, games, movement, handwork, woodwork, gardening and drama.
- Waldorf education is celebrating it's 100th Birthday this year -- with 1000 schools around the globe. We are the educational alternative with a proven track record of success.
- Families come from Oakland, Berkeley, Lafayette, Orinda, Walnut Creek, Richmond, El Cerrito, Vallejo, Pinole, Benicia and of course, El Sobrante to give their child the firm foundation of a Waldorf PreK-8 education.
- Our graduates go on to high schools that reflect their interests -- public or private, competitive academic, artistic or alternative. They are ready for anything and high schools appreciate their interest and engagement.
- The aim of Waldorf education is to inspire life-long learning in each student and enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.
