What accounts for this widespread interest?
Waldorf education provides a rich experience that prepares our students to meet the challenges of our world and the future – with clarity of thought, confidence to work toward needed change, and a reverence for all around. It achieves its aims with a fully developed approach that addresses the whole child – mind, body and spirit. The Waldorf curriculum works from the inside out, recognizing that growing child has distinct, age-related educational and emotional (IQ & EQ) needs according to their naturally unfolding stages of development. The Arts are integrated into every element of the curriculum. Lessons are experienced through drawing, painting, music, drama, recitation and movement.
Our students learn about the world experientially and in doing so, acquire a living education that awakens their intellect, wisdom and deepens the natural joy and wonder of learning. It is this inner enthusiasm and desire for learning that is the hallmark of Waldorf education. Education for the head, heart and hands.
