A student who is enthusiastic learns better. That is the starting point of a Waldorf school. We always make sure that the subject matter matches the development of the child and not the other way around. It goes without saying that personal attention is extremely important.
All students are given classroom lessons and then continue with the teaching material in different instruction groups. Teachers give structure, support, rest and attention. There is a fixed schedule with a clear rhythm. Children know where they stand and what is asked of them.
In addition to lessons such as language and arithmetic, we pay a lot of attention to creative and social development. Waldorf school focuses on growing up to be independent people, with confidence in themselves and respect for others. Our Waldorf education is based on Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophy in which every child is unique and education makes an important contribution to broad personal development.
The word 'free' originally meant 'free from government interference'. Just as with, for example, the Free University, the Free Academy and liberal professions. So it does not mean free of structure!
Swiss scientific research shows that Waldorf children have self-confidence, know what they want, are creative, socially minded and more resistant to stress. They also have an eye for reality. That is a rich foundation for your whole life.
