Our highest endeavour is to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction in their lives.” Rudolf Steiner.

Learning in our school relates to the child’s chronological, intellectual, cognitive and social development through the three early phases of life.

Our preschool creates a wonderfully nurturing environment. That philosophy continues into the primary school where the emphasis is on relationship building. The Class teacher conducts main lessons and assisted by specialists in some subjects.

The 3 R's

Children start to learn to read, write and do arithmetic from Class One, in an artistic stress-free manner. Steiner believed the young child was not ready for intense academic work. More recent studies indicate that premature intellectual activity actually hinders children from reaching their full potential. Their brains have to adapt to do the work because the part of the brain best suited for it simply isn’t ready.

Computers are introduced in High School and there is no use of television within the curriculum. Families are discouraged from using computers, playing video games or watching television at home. There is a strong body of evidence that links attention, learning and behavioural problems in children to screen based entertainment.

The curriculum respectfully deals with all the major religious and cultural traditions. We celebrate the changes of season with festivals designed to appreciate the universal aspects of human experience rather than something narrowly defined by one of the faiths.
