The people behind Epoch:
Isabelle Bridges Boesch
Co-founder, Chelsea Vail, holds a BS in Child Development, MA Professional Counseling, and is a Certified Child Life Specialist and EC-4 educator. After teaching in the public schools and then serving children and families in private practice as a therapist, Waldorf education felt like coming home! It shouldn't be considered an alternative approach to education, it should be the way! Chelsea strongly desired Waldorf education for her twin boys, but was shocked how far most programs have come from the vision of Waldorf education's founder- Rudolf Steiner.
Epoch (Waldorf inspired forest school in Bozeman) will stay true to the anthroposophical roots of Waldorf, with modern day flair. Steiner wanted Waldorf to be a living, breathing thing...we have to let go of the rigidity and dogmatic approach to the programming and imagine how Waldorf would have evolved over the past 100 years! Board members, teachers, and parents in the community are invited to join in studying anthroposophy and Steiner's work alongside the founders.
