About Inodai Waldorf School

Inodai Waldorf School is managed by Education for Emancipation Trust, a non-profit organization working towards transforming the education scenario in India by providing Waldorf Education that provides holistic education for the child. Inodai Waldorf School is an initiative by parents whose children go to a Waldorf School.

Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, balanced approach to education that integrates the arts and academics for children from preschool through twelfth grade. It encourages the development of each child's sense of truth, beauty and goodness and provides an antidote to violence, alienation and cynicism. The aim of this education is to inspire in each student a lifelong love of learning and to enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.

Inodai Waldorf School started in the year 2011 with Nursery & Kindergarten. The Trust is committed to establish the school upto Grade 12, launching one Grade every year.

Inodai is a community based school. Parents are an integral part of the school system. They nurture and sustain the school by familiarising themselves with the philosophy of Waldorf education, contributing their services and expertise and being a support of the class teacher in various ways. In nurturing the school's development, parents provide a mantle of warmth around the school.

History of Inodai

The Waldorf schools all over the world are born out of the demands that arise in the community for a meaningful educational system.

Similarly, Inodai was born in the year 2011 with three children joining the Kindergarten. Thanks to these brave parents who had such immense faith in the system that they put their children in the care of six like-minded people who were ready to contribute to bring about the change that is the need of the hour. The number went up to 9 in the academic year 2011-12.

The next year (2012-13) saw 36 little angels occupy the space in our small nascent school which had only three rooms.

In the third year (2013-14) the number grew to 65. Now it was becoming difficult to contain these little divinely cheerful souls in such a small space.

In the fourth year (2014-15), Inodai moved to a much bigger premise which had 15 rooms and the number of children also rose to 120 which included a pre-school, Kindergarten, Grades I, II, & III along with a section for children with special needs. The teacher training centre CSETT (Center for Steiner Education & Teacher Training), now, had a separate room for itself.

In its fifth year (2015-16), three Kindergarten, Grade I & II are full with 25 to 27 children in each of these classes. Inodai now has 165 children from Kindergarten through Grade V.
