About Wishing Well

Pearl on tortilla day

Wishing Well School strives to awaken and ennoble capacities within the growing child,  rather than merely impose intellectual content.  Inspired by the Waldorf philosophy, we believe in an education of the head, heart and hands.  At Wishing Well a foundation will be laid where the child can begin the journey towards balance in feeling, initiative in action, and clarity of thought.

Wishing Well serves families and students, from Preschool through 8th Grade.


Our school resides in Los Osos, California, which is home to a tidal estuary, a four-mile sand strand, eucalyptus groves, and a view of Morro Rock just to the north of our quiet community. Our home is a hidden gem of the Central Coast, blessed by nature trails and ecological wonders. We are a short 15-minute drive, across lush farm fields and roaming cattle amidst rolling hills, from the slightly more bustling city of San Luis Obispo. Our community provides our children with a rich, inspiring environment to thrive in.
