We’re changing our Name! in September 2019, OSDS will become Harbor Waldorf School.
For ten years, we've been bringing Waldorf Education to the East End of Long Island. Our teachers are passionate Waldorf educators: the singular driving force of our work is a Waldorf curriculum that emphasizes the healthy development of the senses through creative play, meaningful work and expressive arts. Our classrooms are designed as a sensory-rich environments for children to discover the world around them, and to develop and strengthen their inherent capacities.
In 2017, we completed a multi-year Waldorf certification process, additional to our NYS elementary school license, which was obtained in 2010. This certification allowed us use of the trademarked "Waldorf" in our name. We were thrilled to receive this certification, and to finally be able to directly communicate our mission through our name! By changing our name, we're finally reflecting what we've always been: a Waldorf School serving our East End community.
