What is Waldorf?
Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential, and academically rigorous approach to education. They integrate the arts in all academic disciplines for children from preschool through twelfth grade to enhance and enrich learning. Waldorf education aims to inspire life-long learning in all students and to enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.
Founded in the early 20th century, Waldorf education is based on the insights, teachings and principles of education outlined by the world renowned artist, and scientist, Rudolf Steiner. The principles of Waldorf education evolve from an understanding of human development that address the needs of the growing child. Through music, dance and theater, writing, literature, legends and myths, students experience subjects that cultivate their intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities.

It is regionally appropriate education with hundreds of schools worldwide today. Waldorf education is truly Inspired Learning.
