Our first daughter attends Boulder Waldorf in North Boulder. This being our first little girl and her first schooling we were very particular and honestly, pretty apprehensive, about her first school experience.
That said Boulder Waldorf could not have been a more perfect choice for our daughter. She does not do well in a structured environment. Like her dad she is stubborn and just does not like being told what to do! BWK is fairly unstructured and geared towards a ton of outdoor play and that suits our girl perfectly.
The staff in general and her teacher in particular are some of the most caring people I've ever come across...
But beware. If you're looking for a "school" atmosphere and some rigidity this is not the place for your child. There is a very Boulder, earthy-crunchy vibe to the place and there are even farm animals in the back yard. I'm not sure how long she'll stay at this school, but as a first experience this has been absolutely perfect.
