The Waldorf Approach

"The heart of the Waldorf method is that education is an art -- it must speak to the child’s experience. To educate the whole child, his heart and his will must be reached as well as his mind."
[Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf educational philosophy]

In Waldorf schools no single capacity is viewed as more important than another. To foster a child’s healthy development, insightful thinking must rest upon a strong foundation of purposeful activity as well as a framework of emotional development. With 90 years of proven curriculum experience, Waldorf education has nearly 2,500 schools and kindergartens in over 60 countries. Over 94% of North American Waldorf graduates gain admission to a post-secondary school of their choice and 50% go on to postgraduate education.
