What is Waldorf Education?
Waldorf education is an international movement founded in the early 20th century by Austrian philosopher, educator and scientist, Rudolf Steiner. The first Waldorf school was established in 1919 in Stuttgart, Germany, and its approach was based on Steiner's educational teachings, lectures and insights.
The Waldorf curriculum is based on sound principles of child development and endeavors to nourish all aspects of the human being. Waldorf and Waldorf-based schools integrate art, music, movement, stories and folklore, theater and dance, along with the sciences and connection to nature, to foster holistic and creative individuals.
Waldorf and Waldorf-inspired schools are found across the world, and represent one of the fastest-growing independent educational movements.
