Visiting the school

We invite you to visit our school, meet our students & families, discover a Waldorf-based education. We receive inquiries from around the world from parents, just like you, who may be new to Waldorf education but would like to learn more. You’re in the right place and we hope you’ll soon discover why our school is so unique; filled with colorful artwork, the sounds of music & song, and children who are eager to learn and enjoy coming to school each day.

Upcoming Open Houses

Our Open House events are for the entire family and will allow you to visit classrooms, meet teachers, and talk with other parents who can provide their own perspective of life within the Berkeley Rose community. It will also allow your child the chance to visit our school, surroundings, meet their prospective teacher and to explore the classroom. Your child will immediately see the difference and you will too!
