Community Welcome!

We warmly welcome Justine Bianco and Joshua Bingham, and their three children Angelo (grade 3), Apollonia (grade 1) and Durham (age 3) to the Chicago Waldorf community!

Word of Mouth Works!

Encouraging new families to consider the Chicago Waldorf School is best achieved through YOU, our parents

Know any families who are asking questions about Waldorf education? Or would like to visit our school? Please invite them to our last Tour & Orientation of the year: Thursday, May 3rd from 8:30-10:30am. It’s a great opportunity to experience classes in session, and learn more about the philosophy and outcomes of Waldorf education from our teachers and students.

Here are some recent examples of how CWS parents are reaching out and making meaningful connections with prospective families:

Kelly & Cosmin Vrajitoru graciously opened their home on March 6th for dessert and discussion with parents who had applied to CWS and wanted to learn more about the school from current parents. 

Sarah Wellington spoke about Chicago Waldorf School at the "Advice From Chicago Private School Parents" panel sponsored by Neighborhood Parents Network (NPN) and Bubbles Academy on March 13th. This panel discussion reached parents from all over the Chicagoland area in an informative discussion-based setting.

Megan Cummings, CWS parent and Waldorf Handwork teacher, will lead a "Knitting the Waldorf Way" workshop for mothers at the Little Beans Cafe on Webster on April 27th from 10:00-11:00am.

Many thanks to Kelly, Cosmin, Sarah and Megan!

If you know of outreach opportunities in your neighborhood and local communities please share your ideas with Lisa Payton or Jennifer Zielinski in the Enrollment Office (773.465.2371).
