Berkeley Rose School is inspired by Waldorf education
Developed by Rudolf Steiner. The teachings and philosophy take a complete approach to learning—“head, heart, and hands”—and address each child as an individual with innate talents and abilities.
Founded in 2009, Berkeley Rose School established an urban East Bay presence for Waldorf education. This developing Waldorf school brings the ideals of meaningful learning, independent inquiry, confidence and well-roundedness to students at a campus in the heart of Berkeley.
Berkeley Rose School started as a 12-student kindergarten in the living room of one of the founding parents. Seven years later we’ve grown to a thriving school with parent-child classes, two preschools, two kindergartens, and a grades program offering first through fourth, growing a grade a year.
The vision for Berkeley Rose has always been to offer children a school that can be their home from preschool through 8th grade—to build a school that provides community for families for a decade or more as their children move through the grades.
We are accepting applications at both of our campuses for nursery through Grade 5. Come for a tour or join us at one of our open house events. We welcome you to be a part of our community.
