Chicago Waldorf School May Fair To Be Held in Andersonville

Come out and celebrate Spring!

This year’s May Fair we come together as a community to host our first festival in Andersonville to welcome and meet our new neighbors. 

Traditionally celebrated by Waldorf schools throughout the world, the May Fair is an outdoor festival that ritually welcomes the Spring. The school’s students and families welcome the larger Chicagoland community to celebrate the new season with an outdoor street fair and block party. May Fair activities include a variety of family activities, crafts, music and performances

Event Admission is Free!
This year as celebration of a “welcoming fair” all games and activities will be free! (with the exception of Cake Walk, Jump Rope Making, Tye-Dye, and Food).

Community Announcement: CWS Purchases Permanent Home

Dear Chicago Waldorf School Community,

Forty-four years ago, the newly formed Chicago Waldorf School was on the precipice of its opening endeavor and task.  A new teacher had been hired, a classroom rented, furniture donated, and kitchen tiles laid in our single classroom school. Under the guidance of founding teacher, Joyce Brennan, a new Waldorf kindergarten was opening in the basement of the Church of the Three Crosses.  Over the next 44 years the Chicago Waldorf School has grown into a flagship Waldorf School in North America and a leading independent school in Chicago, all while never owning a permanent home.  We have travelled throughout the city to various homes, out-growing each in time as our school has developed into the vibrant institution it is today.  On February 20, 2018 that journey ended.  The Chicago Waldorf School has found and acquired its permanent home.

CWS Announces Move to the Historic Trumbull Elementary School Building in Andersonville

CHICAGO, Ill. (Feb. 20, 2018) The Chicago Waldorf School, an independent Pre-K thru 12th Grade school, has announced that they will be moving to the historic Trumbull Elementary School building at 5200 N. Ashland Ave. in Andersonville in Fall of 2018. After five years of vacancy, the corner of Ashland and Foster will be restored to a school once again. The move will be a monumental event for the Chicago Waldorf School after spending the last 23 years in the Rogers Park neighborhood. The transition to an Andersonville Campus will foster opportunities to lay roots for future growth in a community that shares school values and a facility that provides extra green space, with room to expand school programming and the student body.
