In 1919 a man named Rudolf Steiner developed a new way of educating to nurture a child’s development by facilitating creative, self-directed play, as we believe that the initiative, imagination and flexibility awakened underpin later academic learning and are the basis for innovative thought in adult life.
The first Waldorf school was founded in Stuttgart in 1919. Today there are over 1,100 Waldorf schools and almost 2,000 Waldorf kindergartens in some 80 countries around the globe.
A Steiner education fosters the human spirit in children and young adults, allowing them to flourish in a holistic learning environment that is oriented towards moral growth, social consciousness and citizenship.
This is what our children who attend Children's Garden Kindercare in Albert Park, receive each and every day.
We have chosen the Miriam Rose Foundation as our charity partner for our prestigious celebration of community, growth and unity. The Miriam Rose Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation working to empower Indigenous youth through education, art, culture and opportunity. The foundation focuses on helping Aboriginal youth deal with everyday stresses and identity, the promotion of inner peace and harmony while combating youth suicide.
All monies raised at the Steiner Gala Ball on October 12th will be donated directly to the Foundation and this Go Fund Me has been created to allow those who are unable to attend to donate to the charity also.
