Open Houses

Kindergarten Spring Open House

Learn about our unique approach to supporting the development of young children. Your child is invited to explore our classroom and adults will have opportunity to ask questions and discuss Waldorf education. Register today for Saturday, April 25th, 2015.


Neighborhood Open Houses

A Neighborhood Open House is a great way to learn about the Waldorf School of Philadelphia and meet like-minded families in a warm, welcoming environment. Because it's in someone's home, it's a more intimate, personal experience and allows you to get a different perspective from what you will receive at a traditional Open House Event. Space is limited, so please be sure to register ahead of time for these events.
