Choosing a school for your child is one of the many important aspects of being a parent.
We want to be of service to you as you inquire into the educational experience that will most serve your child and family.
We hope you will take advantage of as many opportunities as you can to find out more about the Waldorf curriculum, our teachers and our school community. Visit us during our talk and tour Visitors Mornings that are regularly scheduled throughout the school year. We encourage parents of students in all grades to make an initial visit without their child to get a feel for the school. If you are unable to attend a regularly scheduled Visitors Mornings, you may contact our Admissions Director to arrange a personal tour. We are happy to meet with you and show you our beautiful school community.
We have special Kindergarten Experiential Mornings for younger children and their parents to get a taste of life in our Early Childhood Education classes, Wisdom of Waldorf events for parents looking ahead to The Denver Waldorf Elementary School, and “shadowing” is often part of the admissions process for students in Grades 2 – 12.
