It is never to early to start looking at preschools! Here are some great preschools in Kelowna and West Kelowna.


The Kelowna Waldorf School has been serving children and families for over 33 years in Kelowna.  Located on Collett Road in the Lower Mission, the KWS is thriving with 142 students currently enrolled in preschool through grade 8.

The KWS offers a multi-age preschool program and Kindergarten through Grade 8 with an average student teacher ratio of one to fourteen! The Waldorf approach works from the inside out, focusing on giving children a deep confidence in their own learning process, and having a deep sense of wonder and respect for life and learning.

Waldorf schools offer a unique approach to childhood education: a balance of the head, the heart and the hands. Students are encouraged to use all three in all of their endeavors. KWS engages a child’s imagination, develops his/her sense of responsibility and improves his/her motor skills with activities such as bread baking, knitting, modeling, storytelling, painting and gardening. The results are children who are independent thinkers who brim with self confidence when they enter the public school system.

If you think your child would benefit from the Waldorf approach contact the Kelowna Waldorf School for admissions information on their preschool or Kindergarten through Grade 8 programs
