The South Shore Waldorf School Association provides Pre School & Elementary programs, offering families a viable educational alternative.
About SOUTH SHORE WALDORF SCHOOL ASSOCIATION
The South Shore Waldorf School receives no government funding and is financed solely from private sources and community fundraising events.
We offer financial assistance in kind and by tuition reduction to any family who wants the education we offer and is committed to supporting the school.
The school's academic curriculum is arts and nature oriented. Children learn self confidence, curiosity, respect, and empathy through cooperative skills-based activites.
In the 19 years since inception, the school continues to grow and attract young families to the small rural community of Blockhouse, Nova Scotia. The school has been described as "an economic driver" in Lunenburg County.
What People Are Saying
"The families that have moved to this area have the mobility due to the nature of their work to live anywhere if they wanted to, but the South Shore Waldorf School is one reason why they chose this community. This makes the school an economic driver. "
— Michael Ernst, District 4 Councillor, MODL
""We moved to Lunenburg, NS from British Columbia so our children could attend the South Shore Waldorf School. We wanted to raise our family in a small community where our children had the time and space to run, ride their bikes, climb trees, and just play. We love our school!"
— Lisa MacFarlane, Financial Consultant/Parent
"We moved to the South Shore specifically so our girls can attend the South Shore Waldorf School... Most importantly, our daughters are happy at school; when we pick them up we can clearly see that they have been well nourished on all levels of their being. There is no better feeling as a parent."
— Katja Rudolph, SSWS parent and Toronto Waldorf School Alumna
