About our School
Wildcat Canyon Community School is an independent, coeducational, non-sectarian Pre-K-Grade 6 day school located in the township of El Sobrante, California, minutes from Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco. We are currently thriving in our first year as a parent/teacher cooperative, after 40 respected and hard working years as the East Bay Waldorf School. Many school community members have remained committed through this transition and are building a strong school program based on Waldorf curriculum that meets the needs of our current time. In this time of renewal, we are striving to build a community that reflects all voices and backgrounds. We are working diligently and are committed to supporting such a diverse student body and their families as well.
We have been given the opportunity to be stewards to a remarkable 11-acre hillside campus and an additional 80-acres which can provide endless opportunities for building community partnerships and developing programs. The desire to work with local community members and native indigenous groups lives within the school community. The campus and its adjacent wildlands function as an extension of the school’s classrooms, providing hands-on, immersive opportunities for students to spend time learning and playing in nature. Included within the campus lies a biodynamic garden and orchard where the children learn to cultivate fruits, vegetables, and other plants. Spacious grassy fields and hiking paths adorn the campus, providing space for the children to enjoy a variety of outdoor, physical activities.
We feel honored to cultivate a school resonant with the impulses of Waldorf education: a development of the “head, heart, and hands” in children, which offers them health-giving, living education in service of realizing and making their own unique contributions to the future.
