Wishing Well School is a holistic, nature-based non-profit school, guided by the principles of Waldorf education, on the central coast of California.

We offer Preschool through Grade Six classes, home school enrichment programs for children in Grades One – Six, early childhood summer day camps, and a first-sixth grades outdoor adventure summer camp. Our focus is holistic, nature-based, and intentional. Through play, exploration, and imagination, Wishing Well children learn through their hearts, minds, bodies, and souls in the warm and loving arms of a living, breathing education.

I am struck by the fact that the more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I do think the same is true of human beings. We do not wish to see children precocious, making great strides in their early years like sprouts, producing a soft and perishable timber, but better if they expand slowly at first, as if contending with difficulties, and are solidified and perfected.  Such trees continue to expand with nearly equal rapidity to extreme old age.— Henry David Thoreau
