Kilkenny Steiner School is delighted to welcome enrolments for a new initiative that will accept children of 5 and 6 six years of age in an ‘Infants’ style year, preparing the children for formal schooling from age 7. Packed with outdoor activities, crafts, art, storytelling, and lots of play, Féileacán will be led by experienced National School Teacher Conor Boland, who has been teaching in Kilkenny Steiner School for 5 years.
“This is an exciting new initiative that we hope will make Steiner Waldorf Education more accessible to all families,” said Jeffrey Gormly, a member of the Management Committee of the school. “As a parent of a child in the school, I had very little knowledge of experience of this kind of education, but after nearly four years I am convinced that any child, regardless of personality, would thrive here as my daughter does. The curriculum really ties in with her personal development, its very empowering of her own learning ability, and the location of the school, in an orchard and garden, is unbeatable.”
Kilkenny Steiner School is holding an Open Day on Saturday July 1st from 11am-1pm for children and their families interested in joining the Féileacán group.
