Waldorf education is the fastest growing educational movement in the world. Developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919, Waldorf Education is based on a profound understanding of human development that addresses the needs of the growing child.
Waldorf teachers strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole soul of child—the thinking the head, the emotion the heart and the will power for being active- hands and legs.
With a deep understanding of child development, a broad curriculum and creative methodology, Waldorf schools place the changing needs of the child at the centre of their teaching.
