Waldorf Education

Berkshire Waldorf School is one of over 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide. Waldorf education, the fastest-growing independent school movement, was founded in 1919 by Rudolf Steiner. In accordance with Steiner’s insights into the nature of human beings and the developmental stages of childhood, our Waldorf curriculum fosters each child’s natural curiosity, presenting material that appeals to the imagination as well the intellect. Teachers take care to balance intellectual, emotional and social growth, while developing each child's resilience and capable will. BWS teachers root lessons in experience rather than present abstract concepts; a botany lesson, for example, begins with a close look at a living plant.
