I was wondering if anyone has thoughts on the private Waldorf school in Tucson? We are thinking about sending our DD there for kindergarten and would love some input.

Thanks,

Bess

Well this probably isn't too helpful, but it's very expensive...way out of our budget. When ds gets to be school age we may look into Desert Sky Community school, which is Waldorf-based without the price and with a different way at looking at Waldorf.

my kids went to their playgroup before preschool it was too far from us to continue, but we love the time we had there. beautiful campus, kind staff and teachers, great community of parents. definitely the only experience like it in tucson - although there is the charter waldorf school, i don't know much about it

Thank you both for your reply! I have heard mixed things about the charter school. I think they are still in a temporary space. I did go to visit the private school and it was very nice but it is hard to get a an overall sense of the community from just a short tour.

Thanks again,

Bess
