KINDERGARTEN

Play is the child’s work. The first seven years of a child’s life are of utmost importance for developing the imaginative and creative capacities needed later in life. The Kindergarten is an environment where children play without formal academic learning and can freely develop within their own world.

LOWER SCHOOL

A rich inner world, well-being and imagination, develops creative thinking and skill acquisition (without digital devices or National Standards) in the primary years. The blend of head heart hands learning, artistic richness and intellectual thought is our unique educational characteristic.

UPPER SCHOOL

Students of the 21st century need an integration of intellectual  excellence,  passion, imagination, social competence and individual certainty. We offer a broad range of compulsory and elective subjects towards NCEA and Steiner Certificate qualifications with high levels of achievement.

Kia Ora, Haere mai and a warm
welcome to our school

We warmly invite you to learn more about Steiner/Waldorf education. Come and visit and be inspired about how whole person education, quality learning and spiritual well being can be achieved for all our tamariki.

We look forward to meeting you.

IS OUR SCHOOL A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR FAMILY?

Steiner schools provide a unique educational opportunity. In educating students with a balance of cognitive knowledge, creative feeling and experiential learning we promote a system of learning that engages all aspects of their lives. This balance is filled with a world of imagination, wonder and reverence for the spirit that lives within every child. Our inner lives and external achievements are part of the interweaving of the physical and spiritual lives that we hold as a cornerstone of what it is to be truly human.

The aims of a Steiner education are to assist young adults to be confident, to be able to effectively engage in the world, have a sensitivity in interrelationships and be guided by their heart as much as their head.

The Foundations of Humanity—Goodness, Beauty, Truth—later grow into Morality, Creativity, Wisdom.— Plato
