What Is Waldorf Education
The Waldorf system of education was developed by Rudolf Steiner. The Waldorf curriculum arises out of Rudolf Steiner’s child psychology, which describes the developmental stages of childhood in great detail. The entire curriculum strives to meet the needs of students at each stage of their development.
Art of Teaching
In the Waldorf classroom subject matter is introduced to children through stories and the arts. Through music, drama, drawing and painting, otherwise dry information becomes alive and is experienced deeply by the child. As a result, Waldorf students develop a lifelong love for learning.
Waldorf teachers strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole child. There are three levels of learning that take place during a lesson.
This 3 fold approach results in students developing the necessary capacities in their thinking, feeling and willing in order to take their place as fully functional adults in this world and to lead a life which is deeply meaningful and fulfilling.
