The Education Journey

A Steiner education introduces students to all the key learning areas or branches of knowledge. Subjects are introduced and developed in a sequence that mirrors the inner developmental changes of the growing child. By using a rich curriculum and innovative teaching methods, teachers nurture the whole child, developing clarity of thought, balance and depth of feeling and initiative in action. Teaching methods engage a wide variety of senses, allowing children to learn by listening, seeing and doing. In this way, academic learning is supported by artistic and hands-on experiences that deepen understanding and generate enthusiasm for learning.
