The Comox Valley Waldorf School Grades teachers are university educated and Waldorf trained and certified. Each teacher holds a reverence and respect for the special qualities of each stage of childhood; this is manifested in their love, patience and kindness towards the children. Everything is done with intention, creating an environment in which the wonder of childhood is embraced and the children flourish. By nourishing the mind and the senses through a healthy, beauty-filled environment, our program fosters the development of the whole child. The grades teachers will ideally guide their class through to Grade 8, thereby knowing each child and striving to bring out the best in each of them. Recently AWSNA or the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America created a document called Waldorf Education: Diversity and Inclusiveness, A Declaration of British Columbia Waldorf Schools and Institutions.
