The Bridge Educational Society
EducationChildcare/Pre SchoolYouth Organizations
The Bridge Educational Society is the steward for The Bridge Land for Learning, a 20+ acre campus dedicated to serving the North Okanagan community. The Society established and operates the Okanagan Waldorf School, which serves students from kindergarten through grade 8, and The Early Years Centre, which provides childcare from birth to school age.
Okanagan Waldorf School is dedicated to providing education that ignites a love of learning and supports children on their way to becoming confident, creative, and contributing community members. As a Group 1 BC Independent School, Okanagan Waldorf School offers Waldorf curriculum from kindergarten to grade 8. The academically rigorous Waldorf curriculum is rich in experienced-based learning and the arts, and is geared towards the developmental stages of childhood. Okanagan Waldorf School has been educating children since 2006.
Early Years Centre is set in a beautiful home-like environment where a child’s natural curiosity and sense of wonder can be fostered. Through indoor and outdoor free play, meaningful work (setting tables, sweeping, baking bread, gardening), storytelling and singing songs, children experience their day nurtured by their caregivers with developmentally based activities. In an environment free from the distractions of technological teaching tools, we offer childcare for infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children, as well as after school-age care.
