About Housatonic Valley Waldorf School

Housatonic Valley Waldorf School is the only Waldorf school in Connecticut, and was established in 1989. It is set in the quaint and peaceful rural area of Newtown, CT – just 75 miles from New York City. Housatonic Valley Waldorf School is based on the idea of shared leadership; we are governed by multiple groups, including our Board of Trustees and a College of Teachers, and we are supported by an Administrative Team and a Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).

Through shared leadership, we offer the best possible education for your child in a welcoming and encouraging environment. From early education to grade 8, we dedicate all our effort to providing a quality education for each student through comprehensive learning programs based on diversity, creative thinking, encouragement and a dedication to a higher standard of education. Our mission is to “develop each child's unique capacity to engage meaningfully in the world.”

Educational Programs for Ages 9 Months to Grade 8

It is important that your child begins to develop their cognitive, social and motor skills early in life. Therefore, we offer educational programs from ages 9 months up until grade 8 so that your child can develop a passion for learning even before they can walk. We allow all our students to explore the world through hands-on projects and experiences while also being taught critical lessons in the classroom. To learn more about our programs, call today.
