Waldorf Education Open House at Tamarack Waldorf School

Families are invited to visit Tamarack Waldorf School’s open house from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., August 1, to learn more about the unique Waldorf method of education offered for children in pre-kindergarten through high school. Visitors can tour the classrooms and meet the teachers.

Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education in order to inspire life-long learning and enable each student to fully develop his or her capacities. Tamarack educates the whole child—head, heart and hands—through the Waldorf curriculum, which integrates strong academics with the arts.

Special subjects include foreign language, handwork, music, drama and movement. Artistic activities are incorporated throughout the curriculum. Playgroups are available for young children. Tamarack, a private school established in 1996, is one of more than 900 Waldorf schools worldwide and is affiliated with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America.

Location: 1150 E. Brady St., Milwaukee. For more information, call Sarah Stokes at 414-277-0009, email Sarah.Stokes@TamarackWaldorf.org or visit TamarackWaldorf.org.
