Main Lessons

Formal learning begins at six, with a class teacher who will teach and care for them for up to eight years.

  • Learning is brought with imaginative and powerful stories, appropriate for the age and learning tasks
  • Learning is supported by art, rhythmic activities, singing  and movement
  • French and German are taught from age 6, through conversation, games, songs and rhymes.
  • Academic subjects are developed to meet the child’s inner developmental needs and to support their growing awareness of the world around them
  • Teaching is an art, not a technique
  • Learning is an active process, involving observation and experience
  • We follow the international Waldorf Curriculum
  • Two hour morning blocks are taught in 3 or 4 week blocks of age appropriate subjects
  • Literacy and numeracy teaching are incorporated into these blocks
  • Learning is consolidated with recall and artistic work
  • Singing, music, painting, movement are used as learning tools not just skills
  • Children produce their own main lesson workbooks as they draw, write about and record their learning process
