Educational Support

Waldorf Education honors diverse learning styles and ways of being in the world. With a deep understanding of child development and Waldorf pedagogy, our teachers are keen observers who seek additional support when questions arise. The ability to perceive and respond to the individual student allows us to meet each child where they are and help them grow to reach their full potential.

The Educational Support Committee works closely with families, teachers and students to assess, develop and implement reasonable accommodations including differentiation of curriculum, teaching styles, assessments, and reporting protocols.

At Bright Water, we weave support into the life of the school, but there are times when individualized support is needed for a student to fully develop their capacities.

Support includes:

  • Team-based observation, assessment, and intervention

  • Tailoring curriculum, methods of instruction, and learning environment to meet different learning styles and abilities

  • Collaborating with outside professionals for further screening, assessment, therapies, and remediation

  • Meeting with families to create support plans and to follow-up on progress
