Our Guiding Vision
Nga tamariki nga rangatira mo apopo.
Our children are our leaders of tomorrow

  • At Four Seasons Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten we offer an unhurried approach to childhood, providing a natural and secure environment that is homely, nurturing and sustainable.
  • At Four Seasons Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten we 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.
  • At Four Seasons Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten we create an environment that supports our whanau, our community and builds the foundation of who our tamariki will become as adults. We endeavor to provide an environment that supports our future community and the future of our environment.
  • At Four Seasons Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten we value the contribution of parents and whanau, and see their input as an integral part of our curriculum and daily practice.
  • At Four Seasons Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten we value, embrace and honour the bicultural nature of Aotearoa.
  • At Four Seasons Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten our curriculum is inclusive, equitable and culturally appropriate.
  • At Four Seasons Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten we strive to incorporate te reo and te au maori into our daily practice.
  • Waldorf education, developed by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) is based on an understanding of human individuality as a being of body, soul and spirit. Body , soul and spirit in this context means:

o Te Taha Tinana- the active physical and physiological organism
o Te Taha Hinengaro – the thinking ,feeling and willing human soul
o Te Taha Wairua – self/identity (the spiritual core of each human being)
