Island Waldorf School, which opened in September 2017, aims to continue the Waldorf curriculum adopted in a number of HK kindergartens through to Primary Years 1 – 6.
It offers a broad and balanced Waldorf curriculum that is artistically structured to respond to the developmental needs of the children. Steiner teachers aim to develop the “head, heart and hand” in a balanced way. They strive to achieve this goal through working on an in-depth understanding of human development.
There is a strong emphasis on creativity. In addition, a high value is placed on play in the early years, imagination in the primary school and critical thinkingat secondary level. Diversity among children is embraced in an atmosphere of trust and reverence of the individual, the community, and the earth.
