Okanagan Early Years Centre
The Bridge Educational Society had established the K-8 Okanagan Waldorf School and turned to Vidar Foundation to help finance its next project, an Early Years Center in the North Okanagan community in British Columbia. When fully operational the Early Years Centre will provide 63 much-needed spaces for infants, preschoolers and school-aged children.
SOUTH SHORE WALDORF SCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN - EXPANSION
The South Shore Waldorf School in Nova Scotia had been renting a century-old school house on a beautiful property with a large green space and wooded area since 2001. The school began to grow and in 2013 they were given the opportunity of purchasing the property. Vidar Foundation was able to offer them the first mortgage at a competitive interest rate compared to what a bank would offer. All this was made possible due to a lender who gave his loan interest free and through the dedication and hard work of the school community.
In 2019 more classroom space was needed to accommodate the Middle School and a space for the Faculty and meetings. South Shore Waldorf School approached Vidar Foundation for funding this expansion of $210,000.00. We were able to do so with the help of a bridge loan from one of our lenders.
Halton Waldorf High School
Halton Waldorf School in Burlington, Ontario started a Kindergarten with 16 children in 1984. Every year a grade was added until the Grade school (1-8) was complete. In 2000 they opened their present beautiful building on a large forested property in Burlington. Vidar Foundation provided mortgage financing so the school could acquire land and build a green, sustainable designed building on a nearby property to house an adjunct campus and be the future home for a highschool.
