School Store: The School Store offers a chance for you to buy the high quality art supplies that your child uses at school and stock up on holiday gifts.

We will distribute the orders to parents before winter break.
Shepherd Valley Waldorf School, on 38 agricultural acres in Niwot, Colorado, has offered a rich Waldorf curriculum since our inception in 1993. We serve families in the greater Boulder area including Longmont, Boulder, Erie, Lyons, Lafayette, Louisville and Niwot.
Our education aims to develop intelligent, imaginative, self-confident and caring individuals who are capable of clear, free thinking; whose insightful feeling promotes sound moral judgment; and who can carry their ideals into action grounded in the practical realities of life. We believe that on such a foundation, the human spirit can flourish, and individuals can become honest, self-assured stewards of the earth and caretakers of society. Our hope is that, with the development of such inner capacities, children will be imbued with a lifelong passion for learning and life, and will be at peace with life, themselves and others.

“As a daughter growing up amidst the natural beauty of New Hampshire in a family of scholars, professors and artists, the connections between mathematics, philosophy, music and art were often emphasized and I chose Waldorf education in order to give my children the same or better education opportunities that I canít find in public schools.”
