Early Years and Main School

The first step on the path to Kindergarten and the Main School  is to join an Enquirers’ Morning.  After this, should you feel that Steiner education is right for your family, there is a simple process to follow.

We will ask you to complete a short biography of your child  and if your child is currently in a school or has been in school in the past we will ask for school reports. Once these have been submitted a meeting will be set up with kindergarten teachers or the class teacher.  For children applying to kindergarten the child will go to this meeting; for children joining the class years only the parents are involved.  This meeting is an opportunity to ask further questions and, for the teacher to meet the child in the case of kindergarten and for you to outline your child’s educational needs.

Older children, joining from class 1, will be asked to join the class for 2 weeks before a final decision is made.
