Wisconsin LifeWays® Early Childhood Certification is located in a beautiful wooded nature preserve nestled in the heart of Milwaukee, offering the best of both worlds to traveling students. Acres and acres of wooded hiking paths outside our door offer busy parents and caregivers a chance to step out of the hustle bustle of everyday life to breathe, focus and learn. Our breathtaking Lake Michigan shoreline is nearby for walks or bike rides and activities for adults and families. The Milwaukee area is also home to a world-famous art museum, great restaurants, two established Waldorf schools, beautiful state parks for camping and exploring, and a wonderful array of farmers’ markets and natural food stores. The oldest LifeWays child care center in North America is on-site, offering a unique opportunity for observation.
