Waldorf education is a holistic multi-disciplinary approach to learning. Play is the work of children. Waldorf Education seeks to nourish and inspire imaginative creative thinking.
Arts and sciences are carefully woven together in the classroom allowing children to learn in ways that they uniquely experience.
We do not pursue literacy or numeracy before the age of seven, although the foundations for these are established. Children of this age are encouraged to discover the world around them, their fellow human beings, and their own capacities and possibilities; through play, exploration and imitation.
Rather than dividing knowledge into separate distinct disciplines, learning is multi-sensory and encourages multiple diverse approaches to learning and problem solving.
Steiner education is geared toward a love of life long, self motivated learning.
Electronic technology is not a part of the primary school learning environment. Instead, Waldorf classrooms are filled with natural and and child-created materials. Children make their own textbooks based on collaborative learning with their teacher.
Waldorf education seeks to develop adults with critical thinking skills and character, so that they can adapt to a wide variety of situations and contribute to the world in a meaningful way.
Waldorf students shine where it matters most – outside the test bubble. They are encouraged to find and pursue their interests with enthusiasm. They learn to approach the world with interest, engagement and empathy.
