What is a Waldorf School? A Waldorf School is one inspired by the teachings and educational philosophy and pedagogy of Rudolf Steiner. It nurtures children through three main areas: heart, hands and head. Waldorf programs are notable for the beauty that surrounds the children, from the careful thought put into wall colors by grade to the wealth of artwork created by the children. Waldorf is also notable for the fact that teachers track their children in K-12 programs, so a Waldorf student might well have the same teacher from first through sixth grade, or even further through the years of their schooling. Waldorf schools are also strong, close-knit communities of like-minded parents, which is a great help when traveling the difficult journey of parenting in this modern era.
