The Waldorf Curriculum is based the philosophy that education should gradually draw out all of the child's innate capacities: physical, social, emotional, artistic, and intellectual. The lessons and activities are developmentally tailored to meet the child's emergent and maturing sense of self and their relationship to the world. Our early childhood program focuses on creative play, imagination and wonder, while grades 1-8 expand into a full liberal arts curriculum. 

"Pairing this curriculum with a child's developmental capacity means the child is never overwhelmed - but always stretched." - Christopher Lind - White M.D.

 

"In linking their curriculum and schooling toward children's developmental stages, Waldorf schools seem to have a unique sense of what children are ready for. They promote creativity and critical thinking in an interdisciplinary fashion...exactly the direction public education needs to move towards." - Jack Miller, professor, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto
