WHO WE ARE

We are a group of teachers and parents united in the interest of educating and caring for children through Waldorf Education.
u
Our aim is to generate an educational community where teachers and families work together to develop healthy and enriching educational processes.
This project was born from a vision of community service and with values closely tied to the social economy and the common good.

WALDORF EDUCATION

Since the first Waldorf School was founded in Stuttgart in 1919, Waldorf-Steiner education has extended progressively throughout the world. Today, there are approximately 2,000 preschools and 1,000 primary, secondary and high schools on all five continents.

What kind of school are we creating?

A school in which…

…children are the priority.
…the official course content is expanded by a methodology which is vibrant and alive.
…we respect and accompany the children in their emotional and life processes.
…we understand education is a work of art and every day is a new creation.
…art becomes a vehicle for learning.
…we educate the intellect, feeling and will of the children, allowing them to become whole human beings.

All the class teachers have received Waldorf-Steiner educational training and our curriculum is based on this educational system.
