Steiner Education

Who exactly
is Rudolf Steiner?

Steiner schools offer a comprehensive, integrated curriculum that responds to a child’s age-specific, developmental needs.

Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) was an Austrian philosopher, education theorist, and architect. He founded the first Waldorf Steiner School in Stuttgart, Germany in 1919 in response to a request from the workers at the Waldorf factory who wanted their children to receive a more integrated education. Steiner oversaw the founding of the first school and developed a carefully structured education system.

The Australian National Steiner Curriculum is aligned with, and approved by, the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA).
