The Village Waldorf School

Gauteng, South Africa

The Waldorf Village School is situated in Rietvalleirand, Pretoria East. The school curriculum arises out of Rudolf Steiner’s child psychology, which describes the developmental stages of childhood in great detail. The entire curriculum strives to meet the needs of students at each stage of their development. The young child learns through absorbing what is around him or her and imitating what he or she sees. The pre-school teacher strives to create a welcoming, harmonious environment in which the child can safely discover the world. As children learn through unconscious imitation, the teacher strives to permeate all her actions seen by the child with logic and kindness. The pre-school child lives easily in the imagination, making this a good place from which to start learning. Free play gives the child an opportunity to develop social skills and act out fundamental life tasks. Here the teacher can step in and direct play to create healthy interaction as needed. Creative play is considered the best preparation for a self-realising adult life. The activities of the pre-school follow a strong daily and weekly rhythm. Hands are kept busy and senses nurtured through water-colour painting, drawing, doing simple crafts and modelling with beeswax, baking and walking in the beautiful nature that surrounds our school.
