Hi! I have three sons (9, 7, 6) and I am looking to find a Waldorf homeschooling group or families who Waldorf homeschool. We just left our charter school over the holiday break and we are starting out homeschooling. I am looking for families who are like minded in raising their children. I find many resources for younger children but finding families who have older children that are homeschooling in a Waldorf like fashion seem to be hard to come by. Any ideas or suggestions would be super appreciated. Thanks much!

Hmmm, well, I only have a three year old, but we live in the PDX area, are sending our daughter to Waldorf-inspired preschool, and are thinking about homeschooling, so if you find anything, we would love to join :)

Shining Star is a Waldorf school and has a program for homeschoolers where you can choose how many days your child attends. The director, Marsha Johnson, has a website with many resources for homeschooling families as well as a Yahoo Group. I also remember that Portland Waldorf School has a one day a week program for homeschoolers. Were you at PVS?

I just moved to PDX from San Diego and am a Waldorf homeschooling mama of a 10 year old and 8 year old boy and am also looking for like minded families to hike and work and play with. I just finished my teacher training at the Waldorf Institute of Southern California, and am enjoying being home with the boys so much that I don't want to take a class outside of home. Are you still homeschooling?
One year of Waldorf with my now 3 year old boy. I would be interested in a playdate or idea swapping mama session. I have considered home schooling but due to financial constraints I am working part time. Keep me posted!
We are Waldorf homeschoolers too! I have an almost 7 year old and almost 3 year old. We are moving to the Portland area in the next 3-6 months from NM and would love to find a group ahead of time.
