Old Town Waldorf school lays out plans for new location

If all goes well, this September the Potomac Crescent Waldorf School in Old Town will have a new home.

The private school is seeking a special use permit (SUP) to operate as a grades 1-5 school at 424 N. Washington Street.

“Potomac Crescent Waldorf School is a private school that will be moving into 424 N. Washington Street, starting in September 2022,” the school said in the SUP application. “Potomac Crescent Waldorf School (PCWS) offers a full day school program for grades 1-5, beginning the school day at 8:00 am and ending at 2:30 pm (maximum 75 students).”

The application said the school follows the Waldorf curriculum — a story and nature-based learning program. According to the application, the Potomac Crescent Waldorf School is the only one of its kind in Northern Virginia.

“Our school offers a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education based on an authentic Waldorf curriculum,” the application said. “We strive to educate the whole human being: head, heart and hands, nurturing well-rounded individuals who will be successful in school and beyond.”

Much of the application was centered around pick-up and drop-off plans for the school. The school will have a pick-up and drop-off lane on N. Washington Street just south of Oronoco Street.

The application scheduled for review at the April 7 Planning Commission meeting
