Other Information
Carol Purdie has been the Co-Director (with her husband Gordon) of Waldorf's Summer Program since 2008. As a dedicated parent in the Waldorf School of Garden City, she was inspired by her experience to bring the unique "Waldorf School experience" to all Waldorf summer campers. Throughout the day, Carol supports the head counselors and coordinates a vareity of special events. "Summer camp is a special place where campers can make new friends, have new experiences, relax and just have fun!"


We want students to meet exciting people, try something different, discover something about themselves, and see the world from a new perspective; put simply we want students to learn.


There is an inviting atmosphere throughout our school created by happy children, engaged families, and dedicated teachers. As a parent—the opportunity to self-select your child’s peer group, one which is aligned with your family’s values and outlook on the world, is amongst the most important educational decisions you can make.


We provide unparalleled opportunities for children, by immersing them in our working farm, outdoor adventures and a community of adults who respect the natural world.


We take the best of classical education and make it relevant by intertwining the arts with academics, resulting in a synergistic experience that creates deeper meaning. No other form of education provides for an academic experience this enriching, authentic and joyful.


We provide opportunities for children to be challenged while creating an environment that allows them to be healthy, satisfied, and productive community members.


Our school includes a 200-acre farm campus, organic gardens, and a community that values well-balanced children.
