What is Waldorf Education?

Waldorf education (also called Steiner education) is a world-wide movement based on an educational philosophy first formulated by Austrian Rudolf Steiner and which grew out of his "spiritual science," Anthroposophy. With a goal of educating the "whole child", Waldorf educators place a strong emphasis on balancing the child's natural stages of development with creativity and academic excellence. There is a strong emphasis on the arts, social skills, and spiritual values.

Waldorf education is practiced in Waldorf schools, homeschools, and special education environments. There are now over 900 Waldorf schools throughout the world including Europe, North & South America, Africa, Australia, and Japan.
