Steiner Education Options

Steiner or Waldorf Education:

* Is based on a profound understanding of human development
* Provides a detailed, richly artistic curriculum that responds to and enhances the child's developmental phases, from early childhood through high school
* Cultivates social and emotional intelligence
* Connects children to nature
* Ignites passion for lifelong learning
* Is the fastest growing educational movement in the world

from Why Waldorf Works

I get a lot of emails from parents around Australia who would love to send their children to a Steiner school, but find that they are too expensive, too far away, the local one doesn't suit their needs or there is some other hurdle. There is a list of Steiner Schools in Australia here.

I have posted before about Steiner Homeschooling.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if more Australian public (state) schools had options like this one (go to Steiner Education under 'About')?

I received a call last week from a local Steiner school looking to expand into high school and boarding school in the near future.

All the possibilities...

  1. Hi Bel,
    Thanks for helping get the word out about Steiner Eductaion!

    Our Steiner School, Shearwater, in Mullumbimby has over 650 kids, and runs from Kinder to Y12 - and it's currently desperately trying to avoid closure - if you can help in any way - visit
