Founded in April 2012, the Alpenglow Community Education Society offers inspirational and unique educational programs for children in the Bow Valley. We currently offer:
The Alpenglow Program
Waldorf-inspired Outdoor Kindergarten - Grades 6 program
The Alpenglow Early Childhood Programs
Waldorf-inspired Outdoor Playgroups (ages 3-5) and Parent & Toddler programs (1-3 yrs)
Guided by the principles of Waldorf education and nature connection experiences, our programs are designed to match the natural stages of human development and to allow children to build a sense of wonder and thirst for knowledge. Compassion, imagination and creativity are nurtured in our home-like school environment and a strong foundation for future learning and development is established by integrating the arts, academics and nature immersion. We strive to empower children and to guide them to explore their full potential.
