We want to help you be strong!
We work with schools to bring them Waldorf Essentials curriculum with training through a site license.
For schools that would like to work with homeschoolers through their school, we offer our Homeschool Partnership. We have been dedicated homeschoolers for years, we honor the powerful fellowship that can come from a Waldorf school community. We would like to help your school bridge that gap by becoming your Waldorf homeschool partner. Learn more HERE.

Helping you create something wonderful.
Waldorf Essentials has helped other schools, just like yours, with our beautifully laid out curriculum and support options. We will customize to fit your specific needs. With over 15 years of studying Steiner's work, our curriculum has complete lessons that are easy to teach from. We offer our curriculum digitally with a hard copy option.
How does this help your school?
Many schools are working hard to provide their newly trained teachers and non-Waldorf trained teachers with resources they need to be successful. With our online teacher course, we work to build confidence in the Waldorf curriculum for your teachers so they can help your school grow.
Training and mentoring.
Our training and mentoring goes beyond what we can do for your teachers and staff - we also offer to work with your parents. Melisa is a parenting coach with more than 25 years parenting experience, she can help your families create a reliable rhythm which in turn helps your enrollment and works to bridge the gap between parents and school staff. Melisa can provide in person or live online sessions for families.
