While many of our teaching practices come from the indications of Rudolf Steiner, we are not limited to the beliefs and values of only one Philosophy. We understand and embrace elements from the philosophies underpinning Waldorf (Steiner), Reggio-Emilia, and Developmental Schools. We draw upon each of these philosophies and practices to provide the most exceptional standard of education and care to every child, every day.
We observe, engage with and actively listen to each of the children in our care, to create learning opportunities which are ‘tailor-made’ to meet the interests, strengths and passions of each child. Therefore, our model of teaching is responsive to the unique learning needs and curiosities of every child, acknowledging their full potential and allowing them to flourish.
