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. Multisensory teaching also gives children the opportunity to learn through a wide variety of experiences, increasing depth of understanding as well as intersecting with individual learning styles.
Most importantly, Waldorf’s unique style of multidisciplinary teaching yields graduates 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.
