Our Community

Four Winds is the only Waldorf school in the western suburbs of Chicago. Families attending our school come from within a 30 mile radius; east from LaGrange, west from DeKalb, south from Joliet, and north from Schaumburg.

Preferring an educational environment that preserves and cultivates the gifts of childhood, where children are more than their test scores, Four Winds parents demonstrate their commitment not only by distance traveled. Serving on committees, volunteering at festivals, maintaining the grounds, and providing office support, deepen connections and fortify our community.

Shared beliefs regarding healthy eating, limiting media exposure, and protecting the precious childhood years allow parents to relax in a community of like-minded people. With carpooling and play-dates, families quickly develop a close-knit social network and develop connections that will last a lifetime.
