Alabama Waldorf School
Alabama Waldorf School (formerly The Redmont School) is committed to providing a rich and balanced educational experience which actively engages the whole child. Waldorf education is grounded in strong academics, enlivened by the arts, and made concrete by practical experience. Our faculty draws on the child’s innate sense of wonder and thirst for meaningful values to nurture a reverence for life and an eagerness to learn. We honor each child’s individuality while building responsible citizenship within a multicultural and developmentally appropriate curriculum.

Our school serves children ages 2 ½ through the 8th grade.  We offer year round enrollment and are accepting applications for our 2010 – 2011 academic year. For more information or to schedule a tour please contact Opal South at 205-592-0541.
