School History

Grade 3 (1)The Meadowbrook Waldorf School was formed by a group of dedicated parents and teachers committed to bringing Waldorf education to their children and community. The school was incorporated as the Meadowbrook Waldorf Association in 1979 and the school has been established as an early childhood and grade school outside of home settings in 1988.

Meadowbrook went through several cycles of expansion and contraction as it struggled to find a permanent location. In 1999, the faculty initiated a profoundly altered way of working that set the school on the path to its current stability. Consequently, the school with the support of its community purchased the 28 acre site on Rt 138, in Richmond, RI where the school now stands. The present campus opened in 2007.

Looking to the Future...
