Our Teachers

“To receive the child in gratitude from the world they come from;

to educate the child with love;

and to lead the child into the true freedom which belongs to man.”

– Rudolf Steiner

All our Primary School Educators are accredited with the NSW Institute of Teachers or are participating in the pre-2004 teacher accreditation scheme, and adhere to the Australian Professional Standards, as well as having specialised training from recognised Steiner teacher training seminars.

By teaching thematically and creatively, the academic subjects are enriched and enlivened in a way that meets the developmental stages of the children, offering both sensory and intellectual nourishment. Steiner teachers develop strong relationships with children and parents, and focus on developing positive emotional and social wellbeing within the child and class community. There is a strong emphasis on relational learning and close cooperation amongst the teachers in the provision of care to individual children.

Our educators are dedicated to creating a genuine love of learning, and to respect each developmental stage of childhood when shaping lessons, planning activities, or creating the classroom climate and environment.
