Our Mission

Inclusive Waldorf School with programs for infants through 8th grade.

Who We Are

We are a vibrant community of educators and families passionate about Waldorf education, the environment, and responsible global citizenship. Founded in 2009, Urban Prairie Waldorf School is a not-for-profit, independent pre-k through eighth grade school located just west of downtown on the near west side of Chicago, situated between the Illinois Medical District, Little Italy, and Pilsen neighborhoods.

Our Mission

Urban Prairie Waldorf School educates children by awakening a love of learning, encouraging reverence and wonder in the world, and nurturing the capacity to impart purpose and direction to their lives.

Our Vision

We envision Urban Prairie Waldorf School at the leading edge of Waldorf education in America. We innovate on the ideas of Rudolf Steiner and contemporary pedagogical philosophy to build an educational program that is developmentally engaging, meets the here and now, and prepares our students for an ever-changing future. Our school is a magnet for seekers and doers, who build a close-knit community that is diverse yet connected by shared ideals. We are intentional, accessible, and collaborative. Our relationships are deep and meaningful. Our campus is in harmony with our surroundings and emphasizes ecological and societal awareness. Our education contains the seeds for social transformation.
