It’s a pleasure.
Waldorf education is unique because your child is unique. Our teaching approach meets each child where they are—academically, socially and emotionally—to help your child become the best thinker, student, leader, and citizen of the world they can be.
A note from our
Welcome to Waldorf School at Moraine Farm! We’re delighted you’re here!
Waldorf education is dedicated to educating the whole child: head, heart, and hands. Through a well-balanced curriculum of academics, arts, and practical experiences, we engage students intellectually, emotionally, and physically. Our small classes, hands-on outdoor learning, and a curriculum threaded with art, music and movement help students develop confidence in themselves as thinkers and creative doers.
I first came to Waldorf School at Moraine Farm as a parent, searching for a school that offers students the opportunity to ask questions and find joy in learning the answers. A Waldorf education does just that, and I would love the opportunity to share it with you and your child.

Our child has been at Waldorf Moraine since age 4, and is now in 8th grade. It has been so wonderful to watch her grow up. Her Waldorf teachers got to know her intimately and partnered with us to help raise her. Surrounded by this love, our daughter felt truly seen, heard, and cherished during her most formative years. We will always be grateful.
This school redefines modern education by utilizing a tried and true methodology of teaching and engaging the whole child. They genuinely love children and treat them with enormous respect. Children blossom into their full potential here and develop a life long love of learning.
Not only an engaging, enabling environment for the curious student forging her/his own path, but a genuine community of equally engaged, collaborative faculty and parents. I’m so thankful to have had two children at the school, now for over more than 10 years, and fully understand how Dr. Joseph Weizenbaum, MIT Professor (emeritus) and author of Computer Power and Human Reason, said of Waldorf students, “…they come closer to realizing their own potential than practically anyone I know.”
My family relocated to the North Shore specifically for the school. We wanted the Waldorf experience for our children. We knew the early education teachers would create a world of wonder in an environment where our children could thrive and grow, but we didn’t foresee the ways in which the teachers not only meet the needs of our children but also our needs as parents.
There is a genuine feeling of love and warmth that extends beyond the school grounds. It is a feeling of community. It is the calm reassurance of knowing that our children are being held, that we are being held, and that we too can hold and support this growing process. Our children love their teachers. We love their teachers.
My family was warmly welcomed by the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm community when our son started in the nursery in 2016. I have been impressed by the gentle and nurturing environment created by the teachers. Through nursery, kindergarten, and lower grades my son’s teachers have been deeply dedicated to their work and connected to each student. The Waldorf school environment allows the teachers to meet my son’s needs and he can learn at his own pace. My son greatly benefits from the individualized attention he receives from the teachers, and he is excited to go to school and learn!
My family has been a part of The Waldorf School at Moraine Farm for 30 years. My husband was part of the first class! There was not a doubt in our minds that we would send all of our 4 children through this school. We are so happy to have teachers that care and bring the love of learning to life!
The most amazing people comprise this school with kindness and true love for what they are doing and whom they serve. We are very thankful for the welcome and care we have been greeted with. I have 4 children and have been a part of many Waldorf schools, this is my last child and we are finishing at what we feel is a glorious representation of what a Waldorf education is supposed to be ♥️ we are Thankful.
Waldorf education is a joyous experience for children AND families. You will never look at education the same way again.
I have enjoyed friendships with our teachers as have my children post-graduation. My children seek their former teachers as lifelong, supportive adults. I seek the teachers for advice long after their specific role as my child’s classroom teacher has concluded.
My wish for all children and adults is that they can have one relationship in their lives that is as enriching as that shared between a Waldorf family and teacher.
We were so delighted with the model of education…with the really important values that were being cultivated so obviously and so clearly, that there was no choice.
This Waldorf School has given my child such confidence and a love of learning. The new location at Moraine Farm is spectacular and allows the teachers to use the beautiful outdoors for experiential, outdoor learning every day. The curriculum is well rounded and child-centered.

Thinking be Learned?
We Nurture It
Waldorf educators aim to engage their students, cultivate their innate curiosity, tap into their individual gifts and uncover their full potential. We help our students explore their world, ask challenging questions and find meaningful answers. In the process, they develop a passion for learning and an instinct for independent thinking that lasts a lifetime.
Watch what happens when your children are encouraged to think for themselves, take risks, try new things—with teachers and parents partnering in the process, and the whole school community providing unwavering support.
Can Curiosity be Taught?
We Grow It
Our Moraine Farm campus offers acres of fields, meadows, woodlands and wetlands to explore. Across the grades, we incorporate the diverse ecosystems of this natural classroom into lessons and activities. We integrate nature study and science investigation into main lesson blocks and core subject areas. Sustainable agriculture, biodiversity, weather and climate, graphing and statistics…all are here for us to discover together and experience in a hands-on way.
Can Creativity be Taught?
We Unleash It
Creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving— often collectively referred to as 21st Century Skills—are capacities that Waldorf Education has developed in students for nearly a hundred years. In a Waldorf school, each lesson is crafted imaginatively to spark active learning. An interdisciplinary approach keeps the curriculum fresh and challenging. Core academic subjects, taught during in-depth “main lesson” blocks, are interwoven with the creative and practical arts. Beginning in the early grades, students also have lessons in Foreign Language, Handwork, Music, Games & Movement. All our students participate in sports and theater, paint and sing, play in our string ensemble, knit and sculpt, garden and build. They explore who they are and discover what inspires them.
