Waldorf Education

Berkshire Waldorf School is one of over 1,000 Waldorf schools, a worldwide movement of independent schools founded in 1919 by Rudolf Steiner. In accordance with Steiner’s insights into the nature of human beings and the developmental stages of childhood, the Waldorf curriculum fosters each child’s natural curiosity, presenting material to appeal to the imagination as well as to the intellect. Care is taken to balance intellectual growth with emotional growth and development of a capable will. Lessons are rooted in experience rather than presented as merely abstract concepts; a botany lesson, for example, begins not with a textbook, but with a close look at a living plant.
