OUR CURRICULUM

At West Coast Steiner School, from Playgroup to class 6, we provide children with an authentic Steiner education that focuses on nurturing and developing the whole being of each child.

Centered on building strong connections between children, teachers, community, and the world around us, our approach is holistic and relationship-based, and our curriculum is balanced, age-appropriate, and tailored, ensuring our students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and awareness to succeed in all aspects of life.

Working from the indications of Rudolf Steiner, we strive to educate the whole being of each child; head, heart and hands. We embed this education within a community guided by goodness, beauty and truth, equipping our students with the skills necessary to enter the changing world with purpose; laying the foundation for them to become self-directed, intellectually free adults with a life-long love of learning. The aim of our curriculum is to support our students growth on their journey to becoming emotionally balanced and socially responsible adults.

THE DIFFERENCE IS MORE THAN JUST WHAT IS TAUGHT

Steiner education focuses not just on what is taught, but on how and when it is taught. Critical to the Steiner approach is an integrated, age-appropriate learning process that engages each child intellectually, physically and emotionally.

Our holistic curriculum intentionally unfolds to correspond with the developmental stages of childhood, both physical and emotional, and for this reason we weave storytelling, fine art, music and movement through every subject that is taught. We encourage our students to engage with and exercise their multiple intelligences in order to optimise their learning experiences and outcomes.
