A Community of Lifelong Learners
At Seattle Waldorf School, education doesn’t begin and end with our students. Our lecture series, community conversations, and book groups are just a few examples of ways we support caregivers with continued learning opportunities.
Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.
Community education is an important component of the Seattle Waldorf experience for our families. Open to all families and the larger community, our lectures offer opportunities to learn more about child development, Waldorf education, and other topics that are important to building a better world. We also hold community conversations that allow for more discussion than a lecture and draw upon expertise within our faculty and caregiver community.
