If you have a question or concern related to your child, your first point of contact is always your child’s lead teacher, class teacher or advisor. We also have a leadership team that is available and happy to serve you. You are quite welcome to contact any one of us; we can either provide you with an answer or we will ensure you are put in touch with the right person to help you. You can reach us at the school by phone or email. You will also receive a Family and Faculty Directory in October with contact info.
The Chair of each Faculty is listed here:
You can dial 905-881-1611 to reach our reception or 905-881-6137 to go straight through to the phone system.
Here are some other people in our administrative staff who may be of help to you:
The Toddler, Preschool and Kindergarten teacher in each class who bring the program to children between 1.5 and 7 years old.
Your child’s teacher is the one who guides the students, and their parents, through the Waldorf curriculum from Grades 1 to 8.
There is a variety of specialist teachers that children meet beginning in Grade 1, through to Grade 12, who bring languages, science, math, movement, music and art to your children. They work in close collaboration with the Class Teachers and Advisors.
From Grade 9 through 12 there are generally 2 teachers who are assigned to each class. Their role is to work with the students to support the healthy social life of the class at school, to help guide students in academic or other school-related questions, and to work with the parent community in each class as needed on a variety of activities and topics each year. They also travel with the class on most school trips, as well as plan and lead the Grade 12 Graduation Ceremony for their class.
In each class, there are one or two (or sometimes more!) parents who are designated to work with the Class Teacher/Advisors to assist with everything from coordinating volunteers on class trips to organizing special events.
All current parents/guardians of TWS are members of the Parent Council, with the understanding that class parents will form the nucleus of the council. All parents are encouraged to attend the meetings. The Parent Council develops and supports initiatives that contribute to a vibrant and inclusive school and parent community at TWS.
Each year in October we publish our parent directory. This directory includes names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses for all of our families from the Childcare to Grade 12. Only parents, faculty and staff will receive a copy.
We do not allow this directory to be used for any kind of commercial purpose, and ask that all parents also honour this policy. If, for some reason, you want some or all of your own address or phone number data withheld from the directory, please contact the front office by September 28.
