Founded in 1999 by a group of committed parents, Madrona School continues to serve families with children in a whole-hearted, nurturing way.
Tucked away in the heart of Winslow on Bainbridge Island, our school integrates movement, the arts and wonder of nature to meet every child's developmental needs.
Our programs for infants through middle schoolers are as unique as your children and the success of our methodology is supported by a growing body of mainstream research.
Our programs provide for rich, deep wholistic learning in language arts, math, science, social studies, foreign language, handwork, music, and the arts.
We are the only Waldorf school in Kitsap County, WA.

This school is pure magic! Mixed with lots of love, space for imagination, creativity, relationship, movement, rhythm and ritual. I have never experienced a place like Madrona before. The Parent Child class sold me on the ways of Waldorf - observation, quiet space, engaging, child led play, and self awareness and reflection. We want our kiddos to know themselves, to speak/use their voice and to have a strong sense of agency over themselves. This school. Madrona. The Waldorf education has already given our daughter a strong sense of self and she lives from that place. As a mom I always feel like I am being guided to get to my own place as a mother, what feels right for me not anyone else. The teachers provide that space; they ask provoking questions as they listen to you and I always find my way. I could go on and on!
