Be a Waldorf student for a day and experience our joyful education
You may have heard a lot (or very little) about Waldorf education. Art, songs, games, verses, handwork, stories – they all sound interesting and fun, but how do they actually help children learn and grow?
Come experience for yourself! We have arranged a full day program for you to sample different aspects of Waldorf primary education. Our students enjoy a balanced curriculum with art, crafts, movement and academics; they make their own main lesson books; they also stay with teachers for longer; and so much more. See the classrooms, artwork, and work from the educational journey children undertake from grade 1 and up. Spend time with our teachers to learn more about their experience and thoughts on children’s education. See for yourself why our children go home full of knowledge and enthusiasm every day.
This will be the most immersive way for you to decide if this is right for your family.
