This Preschool and Kindergarten Open House event is designed to give parents considering Bright Water’s Early Childhood program a view into Waldorf education.  This is an experiential event for the children ages 2-5 years old, as well as their parents.  Please plan to stay for the whole event from 10:00 AM – 11:30 PM.  During the 90 minute experience there will be a baking activity, storytelling, songs, and free play, followed by a puppet show.  Arriving late will limit your child’s experience. This hands-on experience will give you a wonderful glimpse into Waldorf education for your child.

 Come experience a preschool or kindergarten morning with your child.  Space is limited, RSVP Here

BWWS has 8 parking spaces that are clearly marked as being for Bright Water Waldorf School. If you need to park in one of these spaces, please make sure that you register with the Main Office. You will be given a parking pass to display on your dashboard. Parking in these spaces will be limited to 1 hour and we will be monitoring these spaces.

 Where else can I park? Great question! Here is a link for a City of Seattle parking map. There are areas that allow 2 hour, 4 hour, or unlimited times in the surrounding streets. You may also choose to park at Volunteer Park and walk over to the school. We also encourage you to find ways to carpool or alternate ways of getting to school.
