Providing an accessible Waldorf education, imbuing purpose and direction for head, hands and heart.

Homeschool Support is back!

Shining Star Waldorf School offers full and part time school options, including a homeschooling option for children to attend 1-4 days at the main campus in grades 1-4.   The school was founded as a home-education support program with its One-Day Monday class, and children are encouraged to apply for a limited number of these spots per class.  We have discovered over many years that this program option works best for children in grades 1-4, as after this time, the curriculum increases in complexity and interpendent-process learning and it is more challenging to accommodate children who attend less than three full days each week in the classroom.  Please do visit our school, speak with the grades 1-4 teachers, and find out if adding enrollment in our amazing vibrant creative program helps fill your needs as a home-educating family.  We do invite a full year’s commitment from parents, in order to be sure that each class does maintain those close wonderful friendships with each child who is enrolled.  We love our homeschooling kids and each one is a full member of each class and is warmly welcomed each week!  One-Day Monday is available this year, and must be on Mondays to maintain a rhythm that makes sense for the whole class, for those seeking only a one-day option.  Those choosing more than one day, will confirm those arrangements with the teacher of the class.  Please come join us!

Studies show that children who play and listen, engage and reflect, alternate active movement with songs, poems, stories, verses, and develop strong pre-literacy skills through the imagination, simply excel as adult life-long learners!
