Do you want independent creative education for your children?

A human being is more than an academic test result on a sheet of paper. Each of us is composed of mind, body, and soul. No one of these areas has more value than either of the other two. And true, balanced maturity can only come from giving each area the nurturing it needs to grow to its full potential.

At Waldorf, teachers focus on developing in children a sense of where they fit in the world. We impart a sense of their value as contributing members of humanity and world citizens.

Waldorf graduates head into the world ready for the challenges life hands us. They are self-motivated, creative critical thinkers. They are the problem solvers, the solution finders we need.

Creative Education: Our Vision

We aim to create a healthy community where children:

  • Learn with enthusiasm
  • Strive to become independent and creative thinkers
  • Are free to find their true destiny in life
  • Work with purpose, reverence and love
  • Are confident that they will make a difference

The Sciences

The Waldorf curriculum is founded on a deep understanding of the nature of the world. Science is the pathway to understanding the way it works. Our curriculum covers the full scientific spectrum from zoology to botany, geography to maths, chemistry to physics, and everything in between.

Children learn through observation and experience, developing their relationship with the world first-hand. As a result, what young minds learn at Waldorf, they retain.

Arts Education

Human beings are innately creative beings.

“Creativity is the greatest expression of liberty.” – Bryant McGill

At Waldorf we empower growing minds and bodies with the tools to express themselves creatively. Our art curriculum includes drawing, painting, woodwork, handcrafts, and more.

Language and History

Studies of the world take learners on a journey through a rich and varied array of main lesson studies ranging from thermodynamics to Shakespeare, from trigonometry to the history of the modern world.
