The Saltwater School, offering Waldorf-inspired education, is having an open house this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This is an opportunity to meet the teachers and tour the school.  The Saltwater School offers a program that meets the BC Ministry Learning Outcomes and is enriched daily with art, movement, music, drama, and outdoor pursuits.

Waldorf education is a unique and distinctive approach to educating children that is practiced in Waldorf schools worldwide. The aim of Waldorf schooling is to educate the whole child: “head, heart and hands.”

Saltwater School lessons are designed to inspire a love of learning by engaging children’s senses, feelings and thoughts at each stage of their development. Languages and practical skills like woodworking, gardening, knitting and sewing round out the education each child receives at the Saltwater School.

For the 2013-14 school year, the Saltwater School offers a Parent and Tot program, pre-school, multi-age kindergarten, and Grades 1 through 5.

Additional grades are being added annually as the school grows.  To optimize the learning experience, class sizes are intentionally kept small, so enrolment is limited. The school is located at 2311 Rosewall Cres. in the Tin Town area of Courtenay.

For more information, call the school at 250 871-7777, e-mail at, or visit
