With more than 1,000 Waldorf schools in more than 60 countries, and over 2,000 Waldorf early childhood programs on five continents, Waldorf Education is truly global - not only in scope but in its approach. Waldorf is the largest independent educational movement in the world.
Waldorf graduates are recognized for their academic strengths and intellectual curiosity, their highly developed interpersonal skills, and their enthusiasm for confronting life’s opportunities and challenges.
First developed in 1919, Waldorf education is based on developmental insights, consistently demonstrated by educational research to be best practice, that address the needs of the growing child and maturing adolescent. Highly trained Waldorf teachers transform education into an art, educating the whole child, the heart and the hands, as well as the head.
