Waldorf Education:
Waldorf teachers, inspired by anthroposophy’s core idea that every person consists of a “body, soul, and eternal spirit,” help children to relate what they learn intellectually to their emotions and to their will. Waldorf class teachers continue with a class from one year to the next throughout the elementary and middle school grades. Other teachers may be responsible for special subjects, but close relationships develop between class teachers and students, providing a kind of consistency and stability that is rare in other settings.

In a Waldorf School, dramatic, visual, musical, and movement arts, along with practical skills such as woodworking, weaving, sewing, and gardening, are integrated with traditional academic subjects.
