West Coast Steiner School uniquely balances practical, academic, and artistic education for children of playgroup, kindergarten and primary school ages from diverse cultural backgrounds.
The Steiner method was originally developed by Rudolf Steiner in Germany in 1919 and adopts a fully-integrated form of education that uniquely focuses on nurturing all aspects of each child in relation to his or her ‘Head, Heart & Hands’. This holistic approach fosters a lifelong love of learning where children become ‘educated for life’. Today, there are over 1,000 Steiner schools across 5 continents and over 1,600 kindergartens in 60 countries.
Research confirms that children thrive in a ‘nurturing’ learning environment. Music, rhythm and creativity weaves throughout all aspects of school classroom life and also into our community. Steiner education teaches practical yet academic lessons that are essential to the child throughout his or her journey in life.
We believe our unique method of education develops a more positive outlook and a 'problem-solving' attitude which fosters the foundational learning for leaders of the future. Come and experience our school for yourself.
Enrolments for 2014 and beyond are now being considered for our Playgroups, Kindergarten Programmes and our Primary Classes from 1 through to 7. Although our Playgroups and Kindy 4 & 6 programs are currently full for Term 3, 2014, we are still accepting enrolments with all new applications being waitlisted until a place becomes available. We do have limited places available in our Kindy 5 Program and in some of our Primary Classes for 2014. If you would like further information or would like to attend a School Tour, please contact our Enrolments Officer. Our regular school tours are popular so bookings are essential. You can book your place by contacting the school - either by phone, email, or by visiting the school in person.
West Coast Steiner School warmly welcomes all students from across Perth and across the World.
We look forward to greeting you and your child.
