“Our highest endeavor must be
to develop free human beings
who are able of themselves to impart
purpose and direction to their lives.
The need for imagination,
a sense of truth and
a feeling of responsibility—
these three forces are the very nerve of education.”
― Rudolf Steiner
The fastest-growing independent school movement in the world, today, is the Waldorf Education. Waldorf's time-tested curriculum is designed to address the whole child.
Traditional academic subjects are approached in a manner that stimulates the mind. Healthy emotional development is nurtured by conveying knowledge experientially as well as academically. It works with the hands throughout the day, both in primary academic subjects and in a broad range of artistic handwork, music and craft activities. Learning becomes an engaging voyage of discovery of the world and of oneself rather than mere acquisition of information.
The heart of our philosophy is the belief that education must cater to the inner development of the child. The very young child learns best through imitation and imagination, the grade school child through the realm of the emotions and senses, and the adolescent through the intellect.
The Waldorf curriculum carefully balances academic, artistic, and practical activities and develops the child's self-confidence and self-reliance, while fostering personal integrity and a sense of responsibility.
Inodai Waldorf School education prepares the child as thoroughly as possible for his or her future life experiences. A rigorous classical education instils the academic skills necessary to succeed in Upper School and later academic work. Healthy emotional and social development is supported by Waldorf teaching methods and a strong partnership between teachers and families. Our enthusiastic teachers approach the children with respect and love for the emerging individuality in each child.
