Why Waldorf Works

What is Waldorf Education?

Waldorf education is one of the largest and fastest growing non-sectarian educational movements in the world.  Austrian scientist and philosopher Rudolph Steiner founded the first Waldorf school in Europe in 1919.   There are currently over 950 Waldorf Schools and some 1600 Waldorf preschools on six continents. Waldorf education works in New York and Nairobi, in Buenos Aires and Canberra, in London and Tokyo.  And, it works here—in Nashville, Tennessee. 


Waldorf education works because the timing and introduction of academic instruction  mirrors, supports and enriches childrens’ natural, age-related needs. The curriculum provides a rich experience that prepares children to meet the challenges of our world and the future with clarity of thought, a caring heart, and the confidence to initiate change.
We encourage you to attend a Windows on Waldorf Tour to learn how this time-tested international education offers children a solid academic foundation interwoven with unique multi-sensory experiences,  to engage students’ interest, deepen their understanding and spark their enthusiasm for learning.
