Ecole Steiner-Waldorf

Waldorf education (also known as Steiner or Steiner-Waldorf education) is a pedagogy based upon the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy. Learning is interdisciplinary, integrates practical, artistic, and intellectual elements,[1] and is coordinated with « natural rhythms of everyday life ».[2] The Waldorf approach emphasizes the role of the imagination in learning,[3][4][5] developing thinking that includes a creative as well as an analytic component.[6][7] Studies of the education describe its overarching goal as providing young people the basis on which to develop into free, moral[8][9] and integrated individuals,[10][11][3] and to help every child fulfill his or her unique destiny (the existence of which anthroposophy posits).[2][12] Schools and teachers are given considerable freedom to define curricula within collegial structures.[13] The first Waldorf school was founded in 1919 ; there are now about 1000[14][15] independent Waldorf schools and 1400 independent Waldorf kindergartens[16] located in approximately sixty countries throughout the world, making up one of the world’s largest independent educational systems ; there are also Waldorf-based public and charter schools, homeschooling environments,[3] and schools for special education. Waldorf methods have also been adopted by numerous educators teaching in other state and private schools.[17][18][19]
