“If humanity is to live in the future in a socially right way, humanity must educate its children in a socially right way. In order that this may be done we desire to make a small contribution through the Waldorf School.”

– Rudolf Steiner

At Maple Village Waldorf School, we know that creative free play translates into learning and self confidence in the preschool and kindergarten years. We also know that the arts, music, and movement are not expendable extras—they are the keys to stimulating engaged learning across the elementary and middle school grades. We thank you for considering Maple Village Waldorf School for the education of your most precious gift, your child. We offer a variety of opportunities and encourage you to visit us so that you can experience the Waldorf approach to education in action.

Personal Tours

We are happy to arrange a personal tour if you cannot attend a Walk Through the Classes tour or Open House, or if you have specific needs or questions that warrant an individual meeting.  Personal tours can be arranged by filling out the Request for Information above. You will be contacted by Alice Stevens, our Admissions & Enrollment Coordinator, to arrange a time to meet.  Personal tours are scheduled in the afternoon once classes have been dismissed, and children are welcome (but not required) to join you on a personal tour.

Walk Through the Classes

Prospective parents are invited to attend one of our monthly Walk Through the Classes tours. These group tours will give parents a look inside our Waldorf classrooms while in session and share how our unique educational approach builds character, creativity, and confidence in our students. Tours include a discussion with our Dean of Education, Lisa J. McCarthy, and an overview of the Admissions process with our Admissions & Enrollment Coordinator, Alice Stevens.  Tours will include our Early Childhood programs and Grades 1 through 8.  These tours are for adults only (baby in arms/carrier is okay) and RSVP is required.

Open Houses

Open Houses are interactive opportunities for the whole family to experience Waldorf education through interactive workshops and activities led by our faculty.  Families will meet teachers, parents, and students; visit classrooms and playgrounds; view student work; and learn about how to apply. It won’t take long to see why our hands-on approach naturally engages children in the learning process.
