Waldorf Education History & Resources

Waldorf Education, developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919, is based on meeting each child’s learning needs at the developmentally appropriate time. Waldorf educators also carry a deep respect for each individual student and are dedicated to fostering each child’s unique gifts while inspiring a life-long love of learning.

Children are taught reading, writing, science and math alongside music, art, movement, foreign languages and regular outdoor play. This “head-heart-hands” methodology educates the whole child – fostering the cognitive, the creative, and the social aspects of human nature. 

Most importantly, Waldorf’s unique style of multidisciplinary teaching gives children the opportunity to learn through a wide variety of experiences, increasing depth of understanding as well as intersecting with individual learning styles. Our graduates leave with remarkable critical thinking skills, so that they can adapt to a wide variety of situations and contribute to the world in a meaningful way.
