Aloha and Welcome to Our School

Malamalama Waldorf School is a special place where beautiful children learn and play surrounded by laughter, love and a deep appreciation for life.

Malamalama Waldorf School strives to cultivate in each child a love of learning while fostering imagination, building healthy relationships, and honoring the unique spirit of the developing child.

Malamalama means "Light of Knowledge" in the Hawaiian language. And we are fortunate indeed, as a community, to offer a place where childhood wonder is revered and children are free to grow, learn and shine their light. (John Pena, MWS parent)

Enjoy your visit to our school and welcome to our ōhana.

Why Waldorf?   Waldorf Education is based on a profound understanding of human development, providing a detailed, richly artistic curriculum.  Waldorf education cultivates social and emotional intelligence while connecting children to nature and igniting their passion for lifelong learning. Waldorf Education is the fastest growing educational movement in the world.

"Joy and happiness in living, a love of all existence, a power and energy for work
— the need for imagination, a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility,
these are the forces which are the very nerve of education."

— Rudolf Steiner
