Wishing Well School is a holistic, non-profit school, guided by the principles of Waldorf education, on the Central Coast of California. We provide an education for Preschool through 8th Grade that engages the whole child – head, heart, and hands.  Our focus is holistic, nature-based, and intentional. Through play, exploration, and imagination, Wishing Well children develop a love of learning 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.
