What is “Waldorf” education?

Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education. They integrate the arts and academics for children from preschool through eighth grade. The aim of the education is to inspire life-long learning in each student and enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.

Founded in Germany in the early 20th century, Waldorf ® Education is an independent and inclusive form of education based on the insights and teaching of the renowned anthroposophist, artist, and scientist, Rudolf Steiner. Evolving from a profound understanding of the human spirit and human development, Waldorf Education is regionally adaptive and has grown to include hundreds of schools worldwide.
