Steiner/Waldorf schools are responsive to the wider cultural, social and political contexts in which they are located in Aotearoa New Zealand in the 21st century. Our schools embrace and honour Aotearoa New Zealand’s bi-cultural heritage and consider all human beings to be free and equal in dignity and rights.
The Steiner Federation acknowledges Rudolf Steiner’s work. The Steiner school movement in Aotearoa New Zealand works out of an approach of equity and rejects strongly any historical statements from which inferences of racial prejudice may be made. Steiner/Waldorf schools and teacher training centres are culturally safe havens for all.
The Federation of Rudolf Steiner Waldorf Schools in New Zealand’s Curriculum Guidelines state that, “the principles that are fundamental to Steiner/Waldorf education are that it is accessible to, and able to be adapted to, the needs of different ethnicities, cultures and religions. Curriculum content allows for the exploration of a wide variety of cultural traditions and world views. Steiner/Waldorf schools in Aotearoa New Zealand strive to imbue their curricula with the unique spirit and history of this land and its peoples."
Through our passion for an unhurried approach to childhood, we will provide a safe and secure environment that is homely, nurturing and sustainable.
We will respect that each stage of a child’s development has unique qualities and that these should be fully experienced before embarking on the next stage of education.
“Receive the child in reverence
Educate him in Love
Let him go forth in Freedom”
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925)
Children in our community have an early childhood education based on Rudolf Steiner early childhood philosophies.
A haven where they can experience an unhurried childhood in a natural homelike environment.
An environment that supports our families, our community and builds the foundation of who our children will be come as adults, our future community and the future of our environment.
