The Waldorf School education

The Waldorf School education

Waldorf education is based on the principles of anthroposophy (“wisdom of the human being”) by Rudolf Steiner. 

The first school was founded in 1919 in Stuttgart Germany. Steiner wanted to educate the children of the factory workers from the Waldorf Astoria Zigaretten Fabrik. The goal is to develop free, but morally responsible individuals, equipped with social competence and creative abilities.

Waldorf school: how it works

Waldorf school: how it works

The main method of instruction is storytelling and experimentation. Homework and test scores get less attention.

Over a twelve-year curriculum, students learn math, literature, history, science and a variety of arts and hands-on skills.

Elementary students paint, knit, weave, and sculpt. Older children make patterns, books, pottery and sculpt in stone. Everyone learns music: First, they play the flute, some learn stringed instruments, and others join the choir.

Students play non-competitive games and learn to dance. They do organic farming and learn two foreign languages.

Waldorf unlike traditional schooling

Waldorf uses a project based approach to almost all the main academic subjects

They don't have repetitive schedules. For example, a subject like math, science or gardening will take up the first two hours in the morning for 4 - 6 weeks. Then a new subject will get the main focus.

In science, students will observe and later describe scientific concepts in their own words rather than learning about them in a textbook first.

Competition and grades are avoided in the early years and only introduced as students prepare for college and entrance exams.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
