What is Waldorf Education?
With more than 900 Waldorf Schools internationally, Waldorf education is the fastest-growing educational movement in the world. Developed in 1919 by Rudolf Steiner, Waldorf education is based on profound insights into the human being and the nature of the developing child. The depth of the academic program is a distinguishing feature of Waldorf Schools.
Developed and refined over the past century, Waldorf curriculum is designed to introduce students to core academic subjects while integrating arts, movement, music and life skills. The curriculum awakens in the child a respect for cultural origins and historical foundations, fostering a sense of world citizenship. At the same time, a spirit of scientific inquiry and a love of learning is cultivated in students, preparing them for lifelong success.
