Our classrooms and teachers offer a joyful, nurturing environment that allows children’s natural capacities for learning to unfold. This environment is uniquely situated on a beautiful 8 acres campus with flocks of chickens, classroom gardens, and plenty of woods to roam in and play. At Minnesota Waldorf School, we recognize the critical link between inspiration and education. A strong core of language arts, math, science, and humanities are skillfully supported by art, music, movement, foreign language, agriculture, and handwork. Students are academically challenged while developing their sense of discovery and curiosity. Teachers remain with the same class from 1st–8th grade, providing a secure foundation for positive relationships to grow between the class and the teacher. Our Early Childhood program begins at 33 months and goes through 6 years old. At the Minnesota Waldorf School, your child is treated with care, compassion, curiosity and respect.

Minnesota Waldorf School Reviews
The care and attention to respect toward ourselves, our peers, our community and our earth is incredible. Everything is done from a place of loving curiosity and warmth, holding each child to the highest version of themselves.
The families at the school are very invested in each other and the other children in the community. It's become "the village" for my family in a time that is hard to come by.
