Give your child space to play, learn, engage with nature and be a child.

Idealistic, perhaps even novel ideas to us city dwellers but learners at The Waldorf School and The Kindergarten do just that. Every. Single. Day. And they reap the benefits of learning in harmony with their environment and the changing seasons.

 

 

The Waldorf School and The Kindergarten is situated on picturesque Rosemary Hill Farm, a working, bio-dynamic farm only a stone’s throw from the busyness of Pretoria’s eastern suburbs. Our setting affords learners the best of both worlds: an age-appropriate teaching approach from an internationally recognised curriculum, and from the classroom’s doorstep they have access to 220 hectares of open fields, meandering streams, lush brush, and fresh air.

Here, children actively engage their senses and learning happens both in- and outside the classroom. Being outdoors support the development of healthy and active lifestyles, offering children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and promoting a sense of well-being. It also develops children’s creativity, problem-solving, independence, confidence, resilience, and self-awareness.

The world has adopted a fast-paced, high-pressured culture which prizes children’s academic achievement at the cost of a healthy, whole sense of wellbeing. The Waldorf School’s 100-year-old curriculum might seem unhurried and less pressured yet stands in stark contrast to the fact that our children receive a progressive education which puts equal value not only on intellectual development, but also those highly prized soft skills like social and emotional intelligence, divergent and visual thinking, so sought after in the workplace.

With modern boarding facilities and a reliable transport service from Centurion, Pretoria and its eastern suburbs, The Waldorf School is made accessible to learners from the greater Pretoria and Johannesburg metropolitan areas. An affordable education and time-saving solution for most parents having to contend with the humdrum of tired back-seat drivers and bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Give your child space to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment – where teachers understand that children need to be outside to play, laugh, run, learn and just be.

Because learning doesn’t only happen between four walls.

If you share our ideals and want to give your child the benefits of a healthy, balanced and well-rounded education, give us a call on 012 802 1175 to book a school visit and learn more about Waldorf education.
